Connected To Politics

Am I political?
That's a strange question to ask,
By someone who also pays.
A tax of some kind to the government.

And those who express,
They want the government.
Out of their lives,
Only do so to hear their own voices.

If you had asked 'if' I was upset,
Because my taxes paid.
Has not increased my quality of life,
We both would be in agreement.
And on the same page!
Wouldn't we?

Am I political?
Every human being walking this Earth,
Is connected to politics.
Whether they vote, emote or become provoked,
Somebody with political ties.
Will not hide they are trying to get into their pockets.
