the rocking chair


The rocking chair

Sitting empty for the old

On the patio of the mind

Waiting for the day

The old politicians

Time they take a break

They are old still hanging on

Still afraid to let go of power

They shouldn't stay

They can't walk or run fast enough

They will hold up the traffic of progress

They should sit on the rocking chairs

Watch the sunset

Write their books or dreams away

They shouldn't run as the politicians

Let the young take it over

The rocking chair

The old should sit on it

Time they have their rest

Let the young take up the responsibility
