Your cake and eat it…

They’ll say we got what we deserved
We vote for our way of life preserved
A coin that’s view-able from both sides
Along with other stuff besides.
Yet in these days of clever soundbites
Where truth is lost in political dogfights
Where some don’t read their own manifesto
How can voters possibly know!

So trust becomes a thing now gone
You look at leaders and there is not one
For in each you simply have no faith
As Democracy steals away like a wraith.
And if we got who we deserved
What chance our way of life preserved.
