Election Year Poetry: “Clowngress” (from November 2011)

Clowngress, the joke’s on you

Vote for them you know your’e screwed

Count on them to overtax your pay,

While voting for their own pay raise.

All the while they’re funding wars

Into which your money pours.

Tax breaks for the very rich,

While your dreams go in a ditch.

Cutting programs you may need.

If you’re poor they fail to heed.

Congress are a bunch of boors

Vote them all right out the door.

Take away their unearned perks,

For they are a bunch of jerks.
