Stranded

Politics and politicians

Leave you standing,

Scratching your head,

Stranded,

A stranger in your

Own country,

From

Strip searching a

Fifteen year old

Girl in school

To Bill 51,

Eroding more

Privacy and freedom

To protect us from whatever,

It is illegal to walk in a protest

With your face covered,

And yet,

Some can swear their

Oath of citizenship with a covered face,

Politics and politicians

Leave you

Stranded.
