Jokes, Snails, and Apes
When jokes are elected
a state becomes infested
with snails; generating
traffic and aborting
logic to keep the public
When rules are drafted
to protect those elected
the system fails; burdening
citizens with criminals managing
the country’s funds until depleted.
When chaos and greed found
a culture of favoritism all around;
public anger surges after knowing
they are suffering by paying
to keep these parasites seated!
Bureaucracy is an oligarchy
set in slime from snails controlling
every dime spent just by drawing
the line where and how accountability
is administered or hoodwinked.
Corruption is a red tape
hiding a hideous ape!
How about some salt
to get these snails off our tails?
Who follows tales for trails anyways?
They say a joke is as good as the the laughs it gives but what if a joke is elected? They also say a snail is yucky slow and stinky but who'd ever think snails would turn out politicians' lucky horse and handy man for all chores? They play tennis with our crisis, sell us a nemesis, distract us with fears and reprogram our priorities like a sepsis shutting down an immune system!
