“You DON'T want prosperity?” Asked The Tin Man aghast.
“We used to, at one time, in administrations past.
But since then we've learned that as people get poorer
Their vote for the Democrats gets surer and surer!”
Once, long ago, there was no IRS,
No EPA and no HHS,
How did people survive?
They just managed, I guess.
"That's just the problem!"
The scarecrow was crying.
"I have 14 graduate degrees
And I still keep on trying!"
"I thought a master's in Marxism,
A BA in America bashing,
A course in cross dressing,
And I'd soon be cashing
A fabulously educated
Person's pay checks!"
"What went wrong?"
"Turns out, they aren't really subjects!"
"Well, in our modern world,
We have a grand plan.
Compassion's been nationalized.
And we have experts who can
Determine who really
Deserves what we've earned.
And only through them is
'Social justice' discerned."
"Sometimes, I think, that I'll take a brave stand
Against the tyrants who are ruling and ruining this land.
I think maybe taxes need not be so high...
And then I chicken out. I don't even know why!"
"Whenever I consider reducing the state,
I get scared someone might accuse me of 'Hate!' "
