The People’s House

It is, after all, WE the people….



They call it “the People’s House”

But only politicians call it home

Magnificent alabaster structure

Freedom standing on its dome


The sacred seat of democracy

Where the chosen speak for us

Has fallen into the hypocrisy

A state of hateful distrust


Where the ones honored lead

Put there by people’s choice

If truth cannot be well agreed

Then no one gets a voice


And so, “the People” suffer on

As the elected scream and fight

More interested in coming back

Then the doing of what is right


Remember who you work for

Stop bickering to no end

Or we will vote for others who can

And it will be our house again

  1. I’m reminded of Lincoln quoting the gospels: “…a house divided against itself cannot stand.” His reasoning:
    “The proposition is indisputably true … and I will deliver it as written. I want to use some universally known figure, expressed in simple language as universally known, that it may strike home to the minds of men in order to rouse them to the peril of the times.”
