Funny Rhyme Poem

Family Politics

Welcome to yet another funny rhyme poem. At the bottom of this page are links to other short funny rhyming poems

A little boy asks his Dad
"What’s politics all about?”
His Dad said “I'm breadwinner of the family,
So I’m Capitalism, no doubt.

Your Mum (Mom), she's the Government.
She shops, she cares, she feeds,
The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class.
You’re the People-we see to your needs

Your baby brother, we'll call him the Future.
Now, it’s time to go to bed
And as you’re dropping off to sleep
Consider what I’ve said.

Later, the boy hears baby brother crying,
A severely soiled nappy/diaper he found
So the little boy goes to his parents' room
And finds his mother sleeping sound.

At the nanny's room he peeks inside
Lying next to nanny‘s, is Dad’s head
He quickly assesses the situation
And goes back to bed.

The next morning, he says to his father,
"Dad, politics I know the truth and realise."
Dad says, "Good son, tell me in your own words
And the little boy replies,

"While Capitalism screws the Working Class,
The Government sleeps on it,
The People are ignored
And the Future’s deep in shit."
