Not buying those promises anymore

The Burt Bacharach and Hal David musical Promises Promises was a far cry from the promises we have been told during the last couple of years. 

Just this week we were promised the “Armageddon”, the end of the earth and it didn’t happen. 

Then the world’s greatest ‘reasurer had to renege on his promise of a budget surplus. 

Promises to help the disabled, promises to better educate school children, promises to reduce power bills – not today nor tomorrow, but sometime!

Journalists scrambling to get politicians to promise this, that and anything else, purely for a headline. 

Well this dumb cookie isn’t buying any more political promises regardless.

The musical as I recall at least had a happy ending.
