Top men thirst for power
Politicians watch their back
And women even claim
It's an aphrodisiac.

Yes, I admit I crave it
Probably more than most
If my leccy's cut again
I'll have no beans on toast.

Leccy, electricity, electricity bill.

By Hobbo

A contemporary poet with a Yorkshire sense of humour

How quickly and adroitly you went from sublimely abstract to everyday reality. What a clever turn. I bet even Ms. Ingrid does feel a certain surge when it’s MONEY and POWER; one of the thermodynamic laws at work there. Politics is simply the mode-o-day, the blue suit instead of the pinstripe, a means to an end. Well done!
