Tiptoeing Through The Tulips

Et Tu, Brute 001

Abraham Lincoln said, “You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you can never fool all the of the people all of the time.”  As I watch the 2016 political campaign play out before us, I see that the greatest value they all espouse is winning. Winning at all cost sometimes causes candidates to say one thing to one group and something different to others. This seldom works.  People cans see through this tactic, and it usually becomes a detriment in the end. This poem reflects the result of trying to please everyone by being politically correct.

Tiptoeing Through the Tulips

When you try to please everyone

You end up pleasing no one

When you cater to some

Then cater to others

It all comes back to haunt you

The two sides of the coin

Will eventually be seen

In the end those whom you tried to please

Will work for your demise

They will stab you in the back

As you look at them and say,

“Et Tu, Brute?”
