Yes, our political leaders are cynical

Political leaders in a democratic society
Are duly defined as the voice of majority
They are not mandated to dictate
But to be the voice of the people
Yes, our political leaders are cynical

They speak of the need for good governance
But aid in every way governance that is crooked
They boast of public benefit and good
But we are contemptuous of their words
Yes, our political leaders are cynical

With kina and toea buying less and less
We borrow from the world with no shame
Poor health and education in the ascension
Natural resources disappearing by sea
Yes, our political leaders are cynical

O’Neill rules the country with dodgy cronies
Maseratis their desire, not the people’s good
Many are the corrupt; few are the jail terms
Police and security unreliable and untrusted
Yes, our political leaders are cynical

CorruptionThe people marginalised, confused, deprived
Poor get poorer and rich do what they please
The leaders being the richest of the rich
The people slowly wakening to their canny games
Yes, our political leaders are cynical

Our leaders’ words deceive to hide their self-gain
Ego, greed and vanity rule and dishonesty serves
Insatiability a growing culture of our leaders
Promoting crookedness and corruption as a norm
Yes, our political leaders are cynical
