Politics

Devastating are the terms of economic pressure
Debt piles up and creates a fissure

Food becomes a question of what’s cheap and corned
You pay subsidies for the money that the producers earn

If you don’t know how the system operates
Your earnings will deteriorate

And where does the money go?
Does anyone really know?

Well someone does, the people spending it
The politicians supposedly working for the government

You’re working for them, they’re spending it all
On hookers and alcohol

On bailouts for people with cash
While some of us, are out on our ass

They’ll say that’s just the roll of the dice
It doesn’t explain why I’m on the street eating mice

Transparency is the key to success
But they won’t want to secede, give their power to the rest
