Power

At least as long as man has been around
People have wanted more power
Using words to go round and round

They have thought their verbiage makes them sound
Using the trick of giving speeches in the latest hour
That’s been played at least as man has been around

They wax poetic of movements that started on the ground
Even though they preach from the highest towers
Using words to go round and round

They speak vaguely keeping free discourse bound
In two-party pledges and political speak that has become sour
That has been played for at least as long as man has been around

They curry favor in whatever town
Promising prosperity and the sweetest smelling flowers
While using phony words that go round and round

These candidates represent a heaping mound
Presenting the excitement of an empty dower
For at least as long as man has been around
They have been using phony words to go round and round.
