I’m Cashing In a Priveledge

I am a political platypus
An amalgam from both side of the pond
A liberal Republican, a conservative Dem
Neither label am I fond

I am a political groundhog
Wanting to peek out but wary where I tread
For every hole I choose
They beat their “truths” into my head

I am a political Solomon
Sickened by both sides
Who’d rather tear our country apart 
Than concede to compromise

I am a political ostrich
Sad that it’s come to this
Head in the sand, off in wonderland
But sane for my ignorance
