Government is like the lover that never returns to you an equal amount you gave to her. Oh, she talks pretty, like you’re the only one, but where is she when ya need a hug? Or a fondle for that matter? Hell, at this point, after all we’ve put into her we could at least hope for a reach around, but alas, it is not to be.
Putting one’s faith in this lover is a wasted journey. She’ll promise ya the moon and deliver ya rocks. She’ll preach it’s all about you, her one and only concern, and then ya turn your back and there she is chatting up some other country and selling your interests down the river. She has the loyalty of the habitual liar.
Nothing she says seems to be true. She builds ya up and assures you she can be trusted; that your faith put in her is well placed, yet the next thing ya know there she is at the UN forgetting her oath to you and you alone and now she’s promising the Moon to someone from Upper Armpit.
How many times will we be lied to by our unfaithful partner? How many unrequited sweet nothings will she demand, all the while our hearts are breaking? When one is loved – I mean really loved – the one who loves you is supposed to have your and only your best interests at heart. When someone loves you they are supposed to care more for your happiness than their own. Clearly this flouncy strumpet does not care for us as much as she swears she does.
Those of us who love her are in a constant state of disappointment. What will she be tomorrow? What new demand will be placed upon us in order we show her we love her? What lie will she try and convince us is truth? What usurpation in her heart will we next suffer? Hey, I thought I was number one, your one and only?
Didn’t ya beg me to trust ya? Didn’t ya assure me everything ya do is with my best interest at heart? Yet you act entirely different then when ya begged me to give ya another chance. Despite my best interests ya sold me out. It seems my lover has some grand scheme and does not see fit to clue me in on it.
Is my lover a medical professional? If not, why then is she assuring me she can take over my medical care? It’s like she is too interested in others to see to it I survive. Is she an economist? If not, why is she trying to run my every aspect of my economy? Is she a fair arbiter of what really is best for me, or does she have a hidden motive?
If one were even slightly suspicious they would not trust this girl. She does not seem to be on the up and up. She says one thing, does another, and dares ya to complain. She has shifted her focus from you to all the other possible suitors. To this cheat and liar “loyalty” is merely a noun. She has promised her loyalty to you but her actions speak volumes. Your interests are not in her heart.
Of late her interests seem to encompass the flirtations of everyone else BUT you. Now you’re old hat. She’s had you and now she’s ready to get some strange. And in so doing she will hurt you something terrible.
See folks, it’s true, ya can’t turn a whore into a housewife, or a government into the altruistic lover she claims she’ll be, if only we give her another chance. It’s a fool’s errand and a recipe for a disappointment. Only when she is kept at bay and without the power and wherewithal to hurt you can she be trusted. And only then a little. Putting too much faith in her has, of late, been a walk down the path of broken hearts. Oh, I still love her with all my heart, but I don’t trust her as far as I can throw her.
