Direct Action

Inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 11 November 2021, flak.

The corrupt politician was smeared,
His misdeeds threatened end of career,
As he smooth-talked the flak,
One guy gave him a smack,
And then all his constituents cheered.

  1. Sounds like an awful lot of countries and all politicians. Reg. your “unfeeling” post “not listening and ignoring” fit this category well.


    1. I think there is always a problem when we allow people to decide how much to pay themselves.

      I saw a documentary on Jan 6 a few weeks ago and one of the things that struck me was the sheer opulence your “representatives” work in.
