We have heard the old adage
that some can be fooled all the time
but not all the people all of the time
Yet the shrewd and the cunning know
a little time is more than enough
to fool the gullible to do their bidding
achieve their goal, have their way!
So the battered wife is pacified
by a few minutes of profuse apology
and sweet little nothings like 'my milk' and ' my honey'
only to get battered again sooner than later
Similar is the plight of the voter
at election time- fooled
by promises of wealth, health, safety
infrastructure and well being
only to be ignored, disregarded
for the next five years....
until it is time to fool once again!
