Oxymoron of the Millennium

I was a good, honest taxpayer That nurtured a moral dilemma. Why should I perpetuate The state I’ve grown to hate? Subject to the authority Of a fluctuating majority I refuse to comply You can accept, I’d rather die. To be truly honest Why vote in a rigged contest? Plant free trees in a forest Felled by the loudest lobbyist. A good, honest player Pays the public piper Of their own free will Or swallows the pipers pill. 21 August, 2016
