WE, THE PEOPLE

we the people

WE, THE PEOPLE

I wanted to be quiet

But I felt I had to speak.

The opposition was strong

And the defense was so weak.

I didn’t really care if what

I said had little effect.

I wanted my response

Unequivocal and direct.

 

It’s a glad-handing polecat zoo;

Circus clowns and magic tricks.

More double-speaking liars

Making strawless bricks.

Focus on their right hand

It’s pointing at your crotch

But the left is in your pocket

If you carefully don’t watch.

 

Too many people

Are lazy like big bums.

They believe bullshit gossip

And sit on their thumbs.

The information is out there

But they don’t seek it out.

They believe the well-paid fakers

And sit around and pout.

 

It’s a glad-handing polecat zoo;

Circus clowns and magic tricks.

More double-speaking liars

Making strawless bricks.

Focus on their right hand

It’s pointing at your crotch

But the left is in your pocket

If you carefully don’t watch.

 

It is understandable

That they don’t want to stress

So they pay other people

To make a much bigger mess.

They tell themselves stories

About statesmen and stars

And when the gas is cheaper

They buy big guzzling cars.

 

It’s a glad-handing polecat zoo;

Circus clowns and magic tricks.

More double-speaking liars

Making strawless bricks.

Focus on their right hand

It’s pointing at your crotch

But the left is in your pocket

If you carefully don’t watch.

 

Then they vote for President

With mostly a negative effect

But, in the off-year look who at

The idiots choose to elect.

Because the members of congress

Are the ones that write the laws.

It’s almost like the voters

Believe in Santa Claus.

 

It’s a glad-handing polecat zoo;

Circus clowns and magic tricks.

More double-speaking liars

Making strawless bricks.

Focus on their right hand

It’s pointing at your crotch

But the left is in your pocket

If you carefully don’t watch.
