You wonder why I would bedevil
Our politics and scourge with rhyme
Politicos from highest level
To those still clawing up from slime?
The pols, protecting bankers’ winnings,
Now claim banks need our underpinnings:
“Too big to fail.” So they propose
To make my kids pay through the nose.
As well, they have us intermixing
And trying to play catch-as-catch-can
With rebels in Afghanistan-
The Taliban who are deep-sixing
Our soldiers who would never go,
Knowing they’re playing tic tac toe.
