“Can those who have never struggled

The political prostitute
has sold his tongue to elitists men
of course blood
and graven hearts,
over the middle and lower class
with sterling degrees and titles
exempt from Industrial work holding an air of prestige.
Out of touch and ignorant to the
day to day plight.
Can those who have never broken
bread with struggle
create policies to relive those who have?
The politician graces the stage
with an array of theatrics
hands slight of prostitution
feels out his audience,
deliberately blowing wind into words
swaying people to believe one
way rather than another,
whoring out polices that he himself not deem fit to live under.
Can those of prestige connect with those of less?
Can those who live in ivory towers understand clay shelters and work to change structures?
If the politician himself or herself is not willing to live under the burden of these created betterments why should anyone else?
If the politicians themselves claim universal basic income is the best way to relieve poverty, and working class struggles. Will they themselves be required to live within their own basic income standards or be exempt? If it is not good enough for them, why should it be for us.
This is what happens when politics plays the Whore, all are sold no matter the price.
