'Tis yet another year worthy of reflection.
The 2012 elections will not change very much
in the U.S.'s current policies. Many of the
better politicians have retired, died, or
were redistricted out of reelection's realm.
("Better" would equal integrity, intelligence,
concern and effort.)
Human nature (reality) really doesn't often
there are the brave, they are few;
there are the needy, they are many;
there are the greedy, they are too many....
Thereby hangs the tale.
