Poem: Promises, promises, promises!

Promises, promises, promises!
The world is littered with them.
Promises from politicians,
blandly spoken, without knowledge
of the problems involved in fulfilling them.
Promises from retailers,
with assurances that the order is being dealt with,
although nothing seems to be happening.
Promises from trades people,
who are certain that the job can be done
by the time it is needed,

until that day arrives without a sign of an appearance.
