Political Cesspool

Reena’s Xploration Prompt #258
Word: CESSPOOL

It’s a whirling, swirling cesspool of power hungry, greed possessed individuals purporting to represent and fight for the liberty and rights of those who voted them into positions of great and small importance.

Circling towards the center vortex in pursuit of fame, fortune and control, just like a tornado or water spout, tsunami or cyclone. These forces collapse, leaving waste and debris in the wake of what began as good intentions, but becomes corrupted by the very power they seek. Leaving behind a cesspool of spoils reeking of lies, wrong doings and evil intent.

To clean the cesspool, it must be drained completely and refilled from the bottom up with fresh representatives. Then, it’s purity must be nurtured, protected and rewarded to instill and protect its integrity. Lest our leaders become nothing but a pond of dirty water once again that needs to be thrown out, once again.

    As I see it, the major issue is that fighting elections needs a lot of funds. And honest people do not have the resources. Nobody supports them either.

  5. Agreed, Gypie! I am also always thinking about a way how one can cleanse the space, but none of the person wants to leave. 😉 Enjoy your weekend! xx Michael
