Carpet

If only the carpet

In a politicians office

Could talk.

 

It would be able to tell us

Of all their dirty secrets,

From the deals they strike

With other countries,

To the plans they make

For wasting

Tax Payers money.

 

If only the carpet

In a politicians office

Could talk.

 

It would be able to tell us

Whether they’re

Incompetent fools,

Or whether they’re

Just watching out

For themselves,

Trying to get ahead

At the expense of others

And not caring about

Who they hurt

Or what they have to do

To get more money.

 

If only the carpet

In a politicians office

Could talk.

 

It would last

As several politicians

Come and go.

It would last

Until the time came

Where the carpet

Had to be replaced.

It would be taken up,

And thrown out

With all the filth

That lay within it,

As its previous owner

Tries to start anew,

And hides the dirt

That was previously gathered.

 

If only the carpet

In a politicians office

Could talk.

 

A new carpet

Would be brought in,

And as its owner

Goes on,

Unaware of the dirt

That they’re spreading,

Stains form

On the new carpet.

It gains its own secrets

That it could tell

To the world.

 

If only the carpet

In a politicians office

Could talk.
