C2 O Grinning

Capitol Hill lawmakers busy be sound byte spinning Graft siphon those sawbuck bills, so succubus sly Cheshire cat revenue takers, queeny crooked smile grinning Wink the incubus eye, and nod about how much cheddar they gon steal Fat cats sitting on a lounge relax in their dark backrooms, blowing cigar smoke rings Marking the Treasury tax map with grifter circles Them Cheshire cat one tracks love puffing out the zeros C2 O mirror and smoke Disappearing cash, tip-toeing up the pocket chimney it goes C2 O ash-tinted windows Cheshire cats ogling claws greedily scratching fo’ mo’ C2 O taxpayer choke hold Got a crooked, grinning clasp ... Grifter greedy green paw grasp, ain’t never gon smiley let go C2 O mirror and smoke Cheshire cat one tracks love puffing out the zeros C2 O ash-tinted windows Every tax loophole ... open cash register, they don’t ever shut close

Your intellect is off the richter scale R. O to be inside your Amygdala. Apparently there are two amygdalae per person..... normally. Shall delve into the delicacies I've been missing out on over the past two months. Love and Joy, as always. The Bee.
