A Plea to Politicians

The analogy’s simple
Should require no brain
As an obvious pimple
Or a cold driving rain

When our income has dried up
And jobs disappear
Politicians must give up
On raises this year

The budgets are lacking
The funds to fulfill
The pork they are backing
Or their personal till

The banks are not lending
We owe mortgage or rents
But we must keep on spending
On our country’s defense

Once our nation was great
And it will be once more
It is not too late
For to close that barn door

Please cut back your spending
We’ve been pushed to the max
Heed the message I’m sending
We can’t pay you more tax
