political theatre

The Commonweal Weeps

Ask any politician
left wing or right
They’ll shout out
fiscal responsibility

They talk a good game
play at political theater
then reality sets in
as calls from the lobbyists

Dire consequences await
if you close all our loopholes
dire consequences await
if you cut our entitlements

When push comes to shove
politicos all have constituents
who clamor for goodies
and there’s never enough

Rich folks and poor
have their oars in the water
and we folk in the middle
find ourselves up “Shit’s Creek”
