Western Politics

They mainly show extremes

Either too much co-operation

Or only human hostilities

First stifles, second brings annihilation

Barack Obama

I’ll miss this president

On the one hand

He’s civilized, intelligent

Yet, to me, his policies were bland

@D

Whataboutism

It is true that the issues are sad
From privacy to the Syrian war
It is true so much of it is bad
We see things decent people abhor

Yet key figures here make me smile
The clash of personalities who are
Gifted with their charismatic style
We must bear more than one star

Russia, once first on spying,
First on violence in prison,
Now Vladimir Putin is champion
For the free nation’s failing

Vladimir Putin offers safety
To Edward Snowden
And Barack Obama then
Refuses Putin’s hospitality

Yet the US-president
Still has the intent
To relate with, visit Russia
Thus politicians pass this arena

How to summarize this schism
It’s the theater of whataboutism
I stopped judgingYet admire individuals shining
