Summer thermals spiral gulls so high ,
To see them we must pierce the ashen sky
Aloft , one eyed squinting through man made haze ,
An act made necessary to see , not just to gaze .
Politicians knowingly look at you :
Two eyed , forward looking , through and through .
They will not ask your mind to squint or pierce ,
Sound bites of promises are enough , or worse ,
Truths and lies are mixed and matched
In mental cauldrons where schemes are hatched
Then fed to you as rare inspired dreams .
Your vote through ignorance , it only seems
Their plan's to catch you unprepared . No !
Denounce their logic and set your mind to :
Question , broaden , be informed , then
You are - American Patriots - you women and men .
