    I like how I can read this as one single line if I so choose, and also the white noise of politicians as they state promises that they do not intend to keep.

    Also, the word 'drone' makes me think of unmanned weapons or surveillance devices, or both, and used by those controlling government and military alike.

    Strong always topical, great senryu.
