TRICKY ADOLESCENT

"

Every time the politician passes a bill,

He doesn’t stop to think about the people he kills.

He wants a little more dough, so nix on health care,

Doesn’t bat an eyelash when he votes down welfare.

All the poor people are just numbers, just leeches.

The politician never has to live as he preaches,

Teaches hatred, greed, criminal immunity

Doesn’t care a bit about love or community.

Pro-birth, anti-responsibility,

He speaks for the voiceless with an inability

To understand, to empathize, to care what they feel

He stands up for the masses while they’re under his heel.

See, the ignorance of inequality can only stop

When those at the bottom are no longer ruled by those at the top.
