Working the Polls
Let’s install a pole in the Capitol
so our Congressmen can do their tricks
like strippers in a dank club,
teasing and tantalizing their base.
The esteemed Senator from Exxon Mobil
slinks out of his suit and tie,
and promises, if you buy just one more dance,
that he’ll keep the trans out of our bathrooms,
and if you take him to the VIP room,
he’ll make the kids pray in school
then once and for all outlaw abortion,
if you donate just a little more cash.
But no matter how many drinks you buy,
no matter how late you wait by the stage door,
our duly elected representatives spend their nights
with the CEOs of a multinational corporations
and that’s when you realize who’s really getting screwed.
