I could never be a politician,
though I can act.
Smile when instructed.
Memorize stage right, stage left.
Peer into the camera, then emote.
Be sin-serious, rhapsodize, succinctly speak in fine prosaic econo-wise,
But when it came to telling real lies,
that would be a trick that this dog couldn't lick
This body was not made for Politik.
But when it comes to writing,
its a different song...I can fabricate
elaborate, elucidate, enumerate
all day long and never get bored with it.
Or blush for shame.
There's a big difference between prevaricating
and utilizing ones imagination.
Lying in a book is usually all in fun (based on some fact.)
while lying in a election campaign takes a lot of tact.
The author is praised for all his fine skill.
The unskillful politician will never reach
both fabricators, both embroiders on what
passes for the truth.
