entitlement taboo

religion sex and politics are floundering
as Australia is about to introduce
a religious discrimination bill
that returns us to the dark ages

sexual promiscuity has never been so rife
our moral compass lost causing much strife
politicians lack transparency or accountability
bending every rule to ensure ultimate power

so these usual taboos are corrupted
as devices dumb us down, they distract
as we lose ground gained over decades
true freedom and democracy are dead

propaganda and fake news rule instead
poverty and viruses threaten our lives
the one percenters think they’re in control
but we have the resilience to survive

the real taboo is to call them out and thrive
make religions pay compensation
due for decades of blatant abuse
be more discerning in our relationships

make politicians accountable or toss them
tie their incomes and benefits
to their performance outcomes
keep our wits about us to understand

their game plan, use our brains to
discern and disseminate true news
break the apathy and put them on notice
we have the power in numbers …

d’Verse, taboo, Amaya

  3. Politicians are always prepared to come up with their supossed truthful and believable version of them wanting to protect the people. They always hide behind their so called laws and bills and propagandas that mostly written, created and promulgated only to benefit the few.
    Its just frustrating.

  4. With America going on shutdown right now from this pandemic, don’t expect politicians , or religious figures to be our savior. I’m sorry to read in this post that your country faces a similar dilemma.

  5. You are so right! And we must unify as human-beans and use our power!
    Sadly, so many people have become so self-focused they are just letting politicians run things. 😦 We need benevolent servant-leaders. But sadly most leaders do not even know what being a servant, or benevolent, means. 😦

  6. This line stands out for me: the real taboo is to call them out and thrive. What will it take to call them out and see something actually happening towards the positive? We seem to be at a stalemate in that regard. And you may be seeing that the power machine of the democratic party is putting all of their sabotaging and subterfuge gears to work to defeat Bernie Sanders by promoting their milquetoast puppet, Biden.

  7. I do not know what it is about, but politicians should be watched to ensure security, efficient health service and the economy, and not to deal with nonsense, because someone has sex on the brain.
