School Wastes My Time

School wastes my time
I want to be President
I want power and prestige.

I want to be able to be mean to the handicapped
I want to be able to snatch children from their parents
I want to disregard every law that was ever created as a check or balance
I want my children exempt from those laws too

Wonderful that America’s youth is learning this
Taught by those who advocate the wonderfulness of 
Our antiquated voting system – namely the Electoral College
Which insures we will never be a democracy

On Memorial Day especially I weep for the men and women
who died for this country not realizing we are a republic
And even if they had lived long enough to vote, 
their vote would not have counted if they lived in the wrong state
or if their state representative decided to vote their way instead of their constituents way.

I am sick of the corruption I see
I did not want either candidate last time
But I certainly did not want the person who made fun of others
More importantly I think everyone’s vote should have an equal chance.
