Felt some were being a tad intense, too much seriousness, so here is my attempt to make you laugh … please leave a smily if I have succeeded?

How can we truly measure or tell when our politicians will be sincerely concerned about the welfare of their constituents?

How can we know when they hold our interests over and above their own …

The drops of water in all the oceans may be counted
But no one can count on a politician’s sincerity

Every single atom of this universe might be gauged
But no one can gauge when a pollie is sincere

Supposing we invented a device that could measure space
But still we could not measure a pollie’s sincerity

These are the signs that we might see before we have real proof of any politician’s sincerity!

When fine lilies grow in Niagara’s swift currents and crows become iridescent
Then our politicians will become sincere

When apples grow on a grape vine and on the fig tree mangos form
Then we might see a sincere politician

When from the horns of rabbits strong ladders can be well built
Then all our politicians will be sincerely concerned

Climbing this ladder should a mouse eat the moon
Then all politicians will be sincere

When religions practice loving one another instead of just preaching it
Then our politicians will become sincere

When meerkats and moonbeams become friendly and frolic together
Then our politicians will attempt to appear sincere

When free flying owls carry Mt Everest away
Then our politicians might be sincere!
