The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Socialist Politicians
These tax-and-spend socialists never balance their books,
They’ve got their hidden agenda and don’t care how it looks,
They attend every meeting of their socialist hoards,
Get themselves selected to committees and on boards.
Say one thing but mean another so long as people believe,
Democracy for five minutes every five years to deceive,
Prancing politicians with their welfare programs stacked,
Still lie in parliament if their honesty is being attacked.
As they manipulate the system with their tax and spend ways,
Lock groups down in welfare ‘cause they’ll vote and it pays,
But referendums and callbacks that might obstruct,
Are forbidden forever by those who tend to corrupt.
