Sincerity Measure

It is a holiday weekend no matter your belief but I feel a tad of intensity, too much seriousness, so here is my attempt to make you laugh … please leave a smily if I have succeeded?

How can we truly measure or tell when our politicians will be sincerely concerned about the welfare of their constituents?

How can we know when they hold our best interests ahead of their own as their priority

The drops of water in all the oceans may be counted
But no one can count on a politician’s sincerity

Every single atom of this universe might be gauged
But no one can gauge when a pollie is sincere

Supposing we invented a device that could measure space
But still we could not measure a pollie’s sincerity

These are the signs that we might see before we have real proof of any politician’s sincerity!

When fine lilies grow in Niagara’s swift currents and crows become iridescent
Then our politicians will become sincere

When apples grow on a grape vine and on the fig tree mangos form
Then we might see a sincere politician

When from the horns of rabbits strong ladders can be well built
Then all our politicians will be sincerely concerned

Climbing this ladder should a mouse eat the moon
Then all politicians will be sincere

When donkeys become happy, singing and dancing in their dresses
Then our politicians will become sincere

When meerkats and giraffes become friendly and frolic together
Then our politicians will attempt to appear sincere

When free flying owls carry Mt Everest away
Then our politicians might be sincere!

With humble apologies to my favourite Sanskrit book!

Daily Prompt:  Measure



  1. Poem is cute and I give you a smiley face. 😀 I’m not so down on politicians, however. I think many great men and women try. Power and compromise are hard to deal with. I’m just very thankful there are some good people who try to do it! Nope, I don’t have an uncle in the grand halls of Washington or anything like that. 😀

    1. You are right I think some may begin with good motivations but power along with the fame and fortune opportunities, party politics, etc overwhelm and soon they succumb or get out. The lifetime pension and perks afterwards is a real teaser too.

    1. Thanks for pointing that out … I didn’t consciously compare them with animals but that is how it reads, I was just trying to think of highly improbable occurrences
