Work Harder

Work Harder Work harder and pull those boot straps. You’ll have the dream, they say you’ll get fatter. But, not today, today you’ll tighten your belts. You and your kids will wait for a future time to play. Work yourself to death and we will take a third. A little more here. A little more there. Work harder, get 2 or 3 jobs, partner, and we will take a third there too. It’s all being done for you. We’ll live high on the hog, while you barely scrape by. We’ll force you to obey the law, while we get away with it all.

Our politicians are out for what they can get away with and it seems they get away. Politics, like a fig leaf, conceals much shame.
