Political Candidates 101
Today's statement is that there is no statement
and tomorrow's will remain the same
because what is being said has been said before,
nothing more than a cliched game.
The soundbites are carefully phrased
at the optimal time and event.
The kingmakers know the public does not read
but prefers the package and how they present
because if what is presented appears noble and true
then the public will always take to it well
and everything else that the kingmakers present
becomes a much easier sell.
No one really cares about the truth or the lies
because the line between the two has been erased.
All that matters is the one out front playing the role,
the one with the personality and the photogenic face,
and don't forget the family that stands behind,
dressed so well and with smiles so bright.
They look so perfect and ready for their close up.
So let them all stand together in front of the lights.
