The People I Dislike

The people I dislike many look on as great
They even elect them to Govern and to legislate
And for guidance they look to them to point the way
I must be a bad judge of character is all I can say
The people I dislike great power they command
And how this can be so I do not understand
Why their sort of people inspire story and song
Perhaps in my thinking I have got it wrong
Since most of those I oppose the majority celebrate
And elect them as the honourable leaders of the State
With their way of thinking I cannot agree
The poor judge of character has to be me
Those I do dislike never heard of me by name
And with no thanks to me they enjoy power, wealth and fame.
