The Topic is small rodents’ opinions on political policies.
The rat’s attack on the opposition was frightening,
He stood upon his soapbox
Promising everything to everyone.
The mice gathered at his feet
Stood aghast with disgust
‘The guys a liar,’ they whispered to each other.
Long the rat regaled them with what was wrong in society
The poor deserved to be poor,
The rich were deserving as they made the poor
Work tirelessly for them.
The mice muttered the rat must be insane
They wanted to shout their repugnance
Boo his policies
When to their left a chorus of cheers broke out
The rat had supporters,
Mice with banners, flags and a voice,
They cheered on the rat
They wore small caps with Make Rats Great Again
The mice looked at each other
Wondered what they might do.
The Rat smiled a malignant smirk
Nodded his head, urging his followers on.

Caps with “ make rats great again” sounds familiar!
Sad isn’t it
What the mice need now is a cat in a hat. 😀
That could well be the next part.😇
You have captured my opinion of politicians in one lyrical sweep. Well done. and Hooray!
You are too kind though there are plenty to model such thoughts on.
Indeed. Too many.
