The Welfare System


James Bredin

Building after building stacked with single mothers,
Surly sisters with different surnamed half brothers,
These future single mothers and now fatherless boys,
Listen to their loud music and other ghetto noise.

Subculture of smoke, guns, gangs, brothers and others,
The top layer of this sub culture are the single mothers,
Demanding their rights for government welfare support,
As though they were on holidays in this ghetto resort.

And none of this is ever broadcast in the media,
No words could describe it even in the encyclopedia,
And politicians look on this as votersí human rights,
Canít be fixed, canít be changed and itís such a delight.

And bureaucrats and social workers wall to wall,
24/7 and these good folks are always on call,
And maintenance too to mow and sweep and clean,
And keep everything running like a brand new machine.
