Don't Question The Promises

Come Dance With Me
(Politically)

By GC SMITH

A plump chicken in the pot, or two;
oh hell, why stop at a merely that
when I can promise more for you

(sotto voce)

Come together, you with me
Let’s screw those other bastards
It’s the only way to elect me


I’ll provide a mortgage garuantee
of course, college tuition free, and
cheap health care for you and me

(sotto voce)

Come together, you with me
Let’s screw those other bastards
It’s the only way to elect me


With green fuels from the Government
we can roll back the price of gas
while we also help the environment

(sotto voce)

Come together, you with me
Let’s screw those other bastards
It’s the only way to elect me


Mine, yours, and ours: our great Party
join now; vote early (and often),
‘cause it’s the only way politically

(sotto voce)

Come together, you with me
Let’s screw those other bastards
It’s the only way to elect me


I hope that you will join with me
come on now, I’ll solve your woes
with promises I’ll set you free


(memo to self: don’t mention added tax, more government regulation, bureaucratic inefficiencies, drag on the economy, or the wonderful graft opportunities.)

The last bit must have gone out when the fellow hit reply all.

That last bit sounds as if the fellow giving the political spiel hit the reply all button prematurely. (Sort of like the 'off mike' remarks that are accidentally broadcast in A FACE IN THE CROWD.)
