Change

Word was out
The winds of change were blowing
How could such short sightedness
Be happening in a government
Striving for absolute transparency

Singleton had many dealings
Some he reported, others he did not
The one he didn’t
Probably would have blown away
Had he not conflicted himself with advocacy

Word got out
Of the high level interest conflicts
And a great gust blew Singleton
Right out of office
With only a terse letter of resignation

The thing about these guys
Is the corruption of their souls
Where the deal or office
Scatters their values
Like trash on a windy day

They lose themselves in power
Addicts of a different sort
Bereft of humility’s touch
Or senses of integrity.
Thus, comes those not so gentle breezes of change.
