Read introduction

Describes a "political vacuum". Lots of big bloated self-opinionated and self-important imposters everywhere.
Meanwhile, without vision, the people perish.
I saw and still see this in my own country, Northern Ireland.

The Waiting Game

The Waiting Game,
waiting on something that never came.
On and on,
Time denies that golden dawn.
Gathering clouds,
Look down on people huddled in crowds.
Waiting in fear,
Hanging on footsteps, guarding the rear.
To wait is to want,
A glorious, all-consuming charge from the front.
All eyes down,
Dark as the sky, cold as the ground.
Look up to see,
Another imposter, another "key".
The Waiting Game,
Impossible to win,
And you don't have to throw a six to be in.
