STATE OF THE NATION
Either dreaming of half awake
Well dressed men and women
We know they drive big wheels
Their offices not used as toilets
A confirmed appointment a must
But of late something was amiss
They did a choir for the nation
Didn’t know they knew the jig
Were the news wrong or misled?
Was it really a State of the Nation?
Or sing and dance for the nation?
My daughter took the remote
Changed channel to her cartoon
Unknown relief to my shamed face
I took it back to be sure of my senses
Just then the cameras spotted him
From a soft laughter he sobered up
Entertained he joked for real not hurt
That’s the right attitude in high altitudes
His speech clear open to your criticism
Heap of doubts disturb my knowhow
Come soon I suggest to chair a forum
To educate voters before vote casting
And have doctors report for all candidates.
