Prompt 244: Amity

This week's prompt is amity from Dreams are my Reality.  Here is Amity's contribution:

Politicians seem the friendliest
When elections are nearest
They always wear a smile
To conceal their cunning guile…

To win the hearts of voters
They are quick with handshakes
They lift the children to peck their cheeks
And please the moms with such ease

They make all kinds of wild promises
To bring the moon and meet your needs
If only you vote to make them succeed
Only to be forgotten when they win

They unfailingly hold a grudge
Against those who don't oblige
And make for bitter enemies
To innocent people like me!

When will politicians ever learn? 
That with humility and service they can earn
The goodwill of voters and people they need
But they need some traits to stand them in good stead.
Let me say my piece: 
“Amity is virtue…
Amity is the best policy…
Amity is the magic word…
Amity is the key to success…”
