They run to the podium to give great speeches
about the evils of overspending amid poverty's reaches.
One after another, they pose for the folks back home.
And then they dine on lobster and lamb
They pontificate and they spew,
while their colleagues eat and chew,
Filmed for campaign commercials they plan to fund,
from moneys taken from schools they plan to defund and throttle.
And they pass the bottles of fine 300$ a bottle,
no cheap soda for them, dining on lobster and lamb
Meanwhile, the lambs await the slaughter,
The children wait for food.
And poor mothers can no longer feed their brood.
At the risk of sounding somewhat rude;
What the hell are these people doing?
Turning the heat up on all of us,
and the people to slaughter, lobster and lamb
