And Here We Are

Last night we'd had enough of live
coverage of the UK election
and we watched Episode 9, Series 5,
of House Of Cards,
in which the newly-elected President,
Francis Underwood, spoke these words:

'You made this bed America.
You voted for me.

Are you confused? Are you afraid
because what you thought you wanted
is now here?

And there you are, staring back,
slack-jawed, bewildered,
wondering if this is actually
what you asked for.

This democracy, your democracy,
elected me.'
