More Political Rant

     As you may have ascertained I am not a big fan of this administration, nor of the Congress in general. The harm and damage done to our rights as Americans, may possibly be irreversible. Someone once said ‘in a democracy you get the government you deserve.’ So therefore we have only ourselves to blame for the state of the union…..

     But, I think we deserve better, though  unless we demand it, we will be led like lemmings to the precipice and beyond!!!

     Let them know that what is happening to this country is unacceptable! And they will be held responsible.

    Vote!!!

 Unemployment’s on the rise,

yet, they promise us blue skies,

everything will be okay,

just be patient, til that day.

 

The dollar’s down, to almost nil,

and, there’s still no money, in the till,

the economy, is in the tank,

and all we have, is ourselves, to thank.

 

Rhetoric and promises we believe,

how much longer, til we perceive,

that, no matter what the side,

when they speak, you know they’ve lied.

 

I know it’s all, been said before,

but, I believe down in my core,

that their concerns, are their’s alone,

they, won’t be the ones, who lose their home.

 

As long, as they can vote a raise,

for themselves, they’ll never face,

the bill collector, at the door,

they’ll not care, about the working poor.

 

They’ll raise your taxes, and the fees,

and every cent, from us they’ll squeeze,

They’ll keep going, til they retire,

and some, will stay til they expire.

 

But, we are the ones, who are to blame,

I’ll vote for them, I like their name”,

even if, they’re not our peer,

they’ll say they are, to all who’ll hear.

 

They’re not at fault, it was the other guy,

who, put us in this state, they cry,

but, we’ll do our very best,

to tax our way, out of this mess.

 

 So, remember at the polls,

when their virtues, they extoll,

they’re just the same, as most before,

they’ll take from us, til there is no more.
