Ignoring stark lessons of the past
Power and greed are their mantras
Brushing away Karma they will not last

Cat-tails...I was actually referring to all the clowns in the 2016 Political Circus car. Where did all the honest decent men and women go?
Dr Carson is a good man, but he doesn't stand a chance-since he's a honest and forthright man.

I only hope you are right that they cannot last. It's getting a little scary up in here.
