(Song of The Bondslaves) (An ode To what They voted for)

Congress is our shepherd: We are in great need.

They cause many of us To sleep in The streets and on park benches.

They lead us beside The still factories.

They disturb our souls.

They leadeth us in The path of destruction for Their partiesĀ“ sake.

Yea, Though we walk Through The valley of The depression, we anticipate no recovery for They areĀ  with us.

They prepareth a reduction in farms in The presence of famine. They anointeth our income with Taxes.

Our expenses runneth over; surely unemployment and poverty shall follow us all The days of our lives.

And we will dwell in poverty and mortgaged homes forever.
