state of mis-union
All eyes on his speech,
handshake lobbying, blah and blah.
Fresh lies in his preach,
promises to help Ma and Pa.
Words rehearsed with a worn out smile.
“America is great and getting better!”
But just wait a while,
for the opposition letter.
Facts, lies, sources and spies.
Wars, jobs and economic ties.
Same lines, different year,
old guard, new terrorist fear.
I wish I knew what they really say,
in the private cigar rooms of the big bosses.
What grand plans come into play,
when they decide who takes the losses.
Do they really want to give me a hand?
Or is that just for a constituent?
Is this to help We the People of the Land?
Or to cushion the multi-home retirement?
