A vein and an artery run through our democracy
One blue, one red
But so ineffective they might as well be dead.
It is plain for all to see
That they fail to act cooperatively.
On the contrary they prefer to defer responsibility
To maintain their game of eternal bickering.
They filibuster and refuse to use cloture
As the light of Democracy is flickering
on the verge of extinguishing forever.
Yet they continue to fight, reading green eggs and ham
Instead of making functional laws for our land.
We are left with flaws in hand and a useless band
Of corrupt, conceited, and too well treated buffoons
Who care little for the true tunes of reform that looms
In the burning streets, broken glass, and upset classes
Yet this government by the people
Is just as reluctant to release an incumbent they despise.
So mistakes are abundant and redundant and anyone with eyes
Could see this just isn’t working.
Our political heart works in stutters and starts
Because party plotting causes blood clotting.
To stop the clotting just pick a new winner
It’s the most effective blood thinner.
But rather than take some simple medicine,
Readily available in every election,
The people sit and complain of the political game.
Parties and people are the bane
