The refugees are throwing ethanol overboard.
We’ll decide who comes to this country
and the manner in which they come.
Medicare spoils a good health system.
It’s business as usual safe and sound
and for the unemployed jobs abound.
Welfare clients must have no hesitation
they must meet their mutual obligation.
Welfare is such a disgusting word
to say it helps the poor ’s absurd.
Distorted clichés abound
as we run around around
seeking a happy sound
we were lost
but now we’re found.
