An uphill battle

“What’s a politician? Yesterday’s friend, today’s enemy. Today’s enemy is once again tomorrow’s friend. […] Getting a reward for doing something wrong, and getting penalized for doing something right… That’s politics, don’t you think?”

Says the president for reneging on his promise to Hoon. Urgh!

Well, Doctor Stranger episode 20, you sum up today’s event a bit too well…

A year later… he says:

“That friend said this: “A policeman just has to be good at catching criminals. A doctor just has to be good at fixing people.” Listening to that, a politician just has to practice clean politics.”

Siiiiigh. If only politicians in real life think this way too.

I went from excited to hopeful to pulsating to relieved to nonplussed. And when i thought i could have a little more faith…

What happened? Seriously, why??
Where’s the credibility? Whom to trust? How on earth…???

Fair play doesn’t exist, but how about becoming the bigger person when the (final) whistle is blown and the (end) result is announced? This ain’t right =(

Dunia politik penuh dengan intrik
Cubit sana cubit sini itu sudah lumrah
Seperti orang pacaran
Kalau nggak nyubit nggak asyik

Dunia politik penuh dengan intrik
Kilik sana kilik sini itu sudah wajar
Seperti orang adu jangkrik
Kalau nggak ngilik nggak asyik

Rakyat nonton jadi suporter
Kasih semangat jagoannya
Walau tahu jagoannya ngibul
Walau tahu dapur nggak ngebul

Dunia politik dunia bintang
Dunia hura hura para binatang
Berjoget dengan asyik

Dunia politik punya hukum sendiri
Colong sana colong sini, atau colong colongan
Seperti orang nyolong mangga
Kalau nggak nyolong nggak asyik

Rakyat lugu kena getahnya
Buah mangga entah kemana
Tinggal biji tinggal kulitnya
Tinggal mimpi ambil hikmahnya

Dunia politik dunia bintang
Dunia pesta pora para binatang
Asyik nggak asyik

Dunia politik memang asyik nggak asyik
Kadang asyik kadang enggak, di situ yang asyik… katanya
Seperti orang main catur
Kalau nggak ngatur nggak asyik

Pion bingung nggak bisa mundur
Pion pion nggak mungkin kabur
Menteri, luncur, kuda, dan benteng
Galaknya melebihi raja

Raja tenang gerak selangkah
Sambil menyematkan hadiah

Rakyat nonton jadi suporter
Kasih semangat jagoannya
Walau tahu jagoannya ngibul
Walau tahu dapur nggak ngebul

Dunia politik dunia bintang
Dunia hura hura para binatang
Berjoget dengan asyik

Rakyat lugu kena getahnya
Buah mangga entah kemana
Tinggal biji tinggal kulitnya
Tinggal mimpi ambil hikmahnya

Dunia politik dunia bintang
Dunia pesta pora para binatang
Asyik nggak asyik

Asyik nggak asyik… politik
