   The podium

like a shield

protects these political warriors from

the numbers and controversy.

With their nicest smiles

like swords

they battle to win the hearts

of millions.

Their only savior,

the glass of water,

keeps their weapons fresh.

"My plan is better!"

"No, my plan is better!"

Like children

battling over who has the better toy

they spare no expense to insult

with a smile.
