An Ode to Political Campaigning In the USA
Political Seasoning . . . *just add avarice
Thugs, Liars, Cheats and Thieves . . .
Do as you will, not as We please.
Hey, hey, hey!! It’s the USA!!
I’m running for office, ’cause that shit pays!!!
I can lie, I can steal, I can obfuscate,
I can call on love while I fondle hate.
I can wag the dog, I can talk the talk,
I can take your money and walk the walk.
Mine is a position of Privilege and Power!
My lobby is full and it grows by the hour!
Open your wallet and let me inside,
A poor empty purse, I cannot abide . . .
You think, you Electorate, that for you my heart sings?
Make no mistake; your vote gives me wings!
In legislative halls, finding those in the know
who can hook me right up with some posh CEO’s!
Your General Welfare is one big, fat joke
that goes on eternal and that’s okey-doke!
I’d rather it play like the serial undead,
than spoil my fun and be publicly funded.
