The art of politics




The art of politics is the art of saying “yes and no” at the same time.

And to eternally present the idea that “every things fine.”


It’s the ability to waffle on, (of course in the most intelligent sort of way.)

And to add a smile with a sense of optimism with everything you say.


The art of politics is the art of identifying the oppositions every error and slightest wrong.

And then of making a big deal about it in a ‘political dance and a song.’


The art of politics involves making numbers and statistics bend like a Urigella spoons at your will.

And of using those very same numbers to encourage others to vote unanimously for your bill.


The art of politics is the art of turning a blind eye.

But most of all,

it’s the fine art of distorting the truth

(or shall we say in the common man’s tongue) of telling a ‘big white lie.’


Yes the art of politics is truly an art to, (well what shall we say,)

To admire!!

To distain!?

To pay no attention to, or perhaps!

to simply see right through.


O the art of politics!

You may not like it, but it is everywhere.
