It Will Never Happen, Maybe

It Will Never Happen (Maybe)

Ceremony for the "Gods"	The Law, you must attend
Taking turns (now Region One) Freely, (or pretend)

All about expenditures (where taxpayer dollars go)
Transparency? We promised you, we'll keep you in the "know"

Your fair share, (as always) Eighty-four percent
Deducted from allotment that you get for Food and Rent

Let me see, "that leaves you" Exactly, Almost Nil
Now add to that your debt (you owe) for the simple health care bill

Do not fret, you'll get your check (usually on the third)
all of it will balance out, but to taxpayers that's absured

They can request a hearing, before the I R S
rest assured they're treated fair (no reason for distress)

Your government takes care of you, no need for you to worry
their main concern the taxpayer (rebellion filled with fury)

Thought of moving, did you?  Life's better "across the border"?
Not needed now, (they took it down) "We are one", The new World Order.....
                                                             Pete Yuhas

It's closer than most people believe. Soon they will have us all standing in bread lines. Socialism at it's best. Awesome poem. Love and hugs, Catie :-)
