Democrats Versified

They tax your life,

They tax your death,

They’d like to tax your very breath.

They tax your house,

They tax your car,

And excise tax your last cigar.

They tax your water

And your wine,

“What once was yours

Is mostly mine.”

They tax the saint,

They tax the sinner,

And each and every lotto winner.

They squeeze your purse

Until it quacks,

And then they even tax the tax.

They tax you for the good of all,

Until the big become the small,

And all of us depend on them,

And evermore we must vote Dem.

One leader San Francisco sweet,

Another from the desert’s heat,

The Chieftain from the islands came,

Elected by another name,

To bring us hope,

To bring us change,

Our nation he must rearrange.

A Saul Alinsky acolyte,

So many wrongs to set aright,

He’ll lean the country hard aport,

And try to stack the highest court,

Antagonize our former friends,

And offer enemies amends.

But socialist he does deny,

A pinkish twinkle in his eye,

His left hand waves,

But not his right,

A Saul Alinsky acolyte.

Our health depends on Dem largess,

Insurance we must all possess,

And all of us must acquiesce,

Obey the law no one has read,

And give away our daily bread

To pay for Nancy’s craziness.

But hope and change

We’ll have again

Beginning Fall Two-thousand Ten

When voters turn the donkeys out

And cleanse the Capitol redoubt

And hope the Pachyderm returned

The Constitution he’s relearned,

Expressing principled belief—

In 2012 we can the Chief.

    “his left hand waves
    but not his right” – just brilliant

    and all of it, fabulously wry 🙂
