Poem - Least Qualified

“Least Qualified” is a social commentary poem about the 45’s choices of government department leadership.

Least Qualified

The least qualified fill the voids
by the measure of experience
or the mark of temperament
you’d wonder how this could be
when the least adequate preside
ready to wreck the world

conflicts become the norm
agendas contrary to the task
according to the old missions
set by the sane architects
with principles aligned
to the purpose of the governance

perhaps there is a grand plan
a reason for the disconnect
puppet master pulling strings
then I realize it is more dire
chaos spawned by currency
the qualified lack pocket books

the affluent will now reign
with the programs of their own
groomed to satisfy the few
it matters not when money rules
most qualified is still in play
by legal tender as resume.
