Let the Games End

Welcome
to the game we call politics—
no don’t take a seat.  It’s
standing room only, now
go mill about.
Here
come the players; they’re bringing
the heat.
Benchwarmers all, so you’d better watch
out!
No teams,
rest assured it’s an individual sport.
(Though knowing glances are exchanged
and hands are hidden
beneath the table.)
Stakes are high, tempers flare in this court.
Now
comes the point where
they all try to label
those seated around them with
syrupy slander.
Scattered about
are the
sparse
few bona fide.  They’re
covered in labels—just take one gander,
while
overlooked in the corner
crooks sit
genocide by side.
