How amazing; simple but straight to the bone.  It made me cry and laugh.  A poem that is simple but encompasses so much.  Pain in recognising that what we would all like in our politicians is “childlike” honesty and what we get on the whole is childish spoiled brats, whose tears are only ever for themselves.
Beautifully read.
