There are many things that need a fix
But if I can only change just one,
Government policy is what I’d pick
Even if only a little can be done.
The economy is in such a bad state,
While working wage jobs are not so many;
Families have bills that are very late
And food, well, some don’t have any.
Politicians strive for new legislation
As they constantly argue up on the Hill,
With shutdowns, reductions, and eliminations-
All they keep doing is raising our bill.
With multiple tax hikes and high gas prices,
And grocery costs going through the roof,
No wonder we are in such a crisis
But our U.S. government is still quite aloof.
I believe that one of our best options
Is to rally everyone to the voting polls;
Let’s end this reckless representation
With a replacement of caring souls.
American Democracy is meant for all of us
It’s not just there for the privileged few,
Taking our country back would be a plus
It’ll be a positive change for me and you.
