Smells Like Government

Rancid lemon rope squeeze around a rotten tomato neck tie, crooked odor bow hanging out of place Acid reflux raisin tax bleed; dripping spoiled, milquetoast lies out a sour-twisted, prune puckered face Tart tongue sulfur speak disorderly, dirty saliva fingers in the propaganda pie Such a bowel movement disgrace Bottom rung bung opening vault key Onion groans ... chittering fermented cry Boot-licking patent leather taste Smells like government to me, corrupt as can be Dung pile of voter promises, sits atop a pungent idol landfill heap, swarming with stinking lip flies Smells just like reeking government gluttony — O beast behavior ... swine odor, foul as can be Swindle spit vapors perfidiously wafting, kindle the vomit pit Sewage waste material ash labors fanning, can you stand the stench of it? Smells like dead paper figurehead government to me Bait-and-switch fishy business ... close your eyes, what does your nose see? Tainted meat polltry speech, pluck the purse feathers off the cable perched pigeon bodies Smells like government is about to make a putrid, baked-in story Made up facts ... maggot video feed Stale, bureaucratic policy hard rolls warmed over twice Buttered late with expired date lies Served with a cloying cup of steaming sound-byte coffee: Substitute truth ... false sugary Toilet swirl coffin cake, gutter floss the oral cavity Bad breath vows made, garbage hope nobody needs Government smells like a morgue dog in heat Very omit cadaver, obit disgusting Smells like a pot of burning bones on a boil Bottom lip scum rising to the top On a truthful breath: Let me tell you, it stinks an awful lot Smells like scurvy government to me, corrupt as base bribery can be The lobbyist rats are scarfing down the moldy green government cheese, so silver spoon tongue greedily Nothing like some regurgitated split-pea pleas to hit the decaying belly ballot gastric spot Can you make a federal case of this rank-and-foul flatulent republic rot?

Hmmm, all I can say is that you are a wise man of truth. Someone had to say it all; thank you.

Freddie, just taking a wild stab here but I'm guessing you do not agree with our current administration's policies. Had me laughing from start to finish:)
