A bit of a laugh

Warning: This post is not to be taken seriously.

I’ve been rather serious of late. It’s time for a bit of fun before I write about the next topic I promised. Don’t be put off by this seemingly serious question: Why do we vote for certain politicians? We like to think it’s because we agree with their policies, but is that always true? Sometimes, politicians don’t seem to have any policies and yet we still vote for them. Sometimes, it’s because of their looks. Sometimes, it’s because of their ability to talk, even when they have nothing to say.

Just now, where I am, it seems there’s another reason. We voted for a politician because we like to laugh at his wife. Because she says the most outrageous things. I can’t think of any other reason. So I’ve written an ode to her.

Sarah, this rhyme is to show we adore you,
Almost as much as we abhor you.
Whenever we’re feeling a little sad,
When the world is against us and thinks we’re bad,
We rush to turn on the TV
And on the screen we hope to see
Your shining face with its ready smile,
So confident and full of guile.
We don’t mind hearing you’ve overspent
On luxury hotels, hairdressers and scent,
Although the silver on your table
Comes from our hard work – those who are able.
Your soul we revere and adulate.
You are the mother of our state.

For the background, see this.
