Politician Priorities (#1990)

Normal people seek happiness and health,
But politicians only seek power and wealth,
Their priorities are not aligned with our own,
Demonstrations of this are repeatedly shown,
There wouldn’t be war if that weren’t true,
Why don’t they work to help me and you?
They say they do but results show otherwise,
They merely enrich themselves and polarize,
They only care about money and primaries,
Corporations are the ultimate beneficiaries,
Governments should be there to manage,
To act as civil servants- not take advantage,
