I Will Never Understand

I will never understand
Why heavily my heart conjure short in the maze
Often times I stormed
Into the Republicans and the Democrats misconstrue,
Ironing the sheets yes - in metaphysics,
Spreading the pieces yes - in paces,
Some in sheer pessimism,
While others, pure determinism.

Still, I will never understand,
You all have many a reason to be thankful,
Or better still, many a reason to take a stand.
There lies my head in the sand
Fully buried - disgraceful
Having had my placenta planted few -
Feet into the ground in a land governed by a
Parliament of Vultures,
Mismanaged in the foolishness of the fools,
Now - that's shameful.
