The president showed sensitivity
To business interests first and last;
But then all pols have that proclivity
Or else they’re going nowhere fast.
But that’s the trouble with a nation
That’s built on workers’ exploitation;
And, while it’s true they cannot vote,
The corporations float the boat
Of each and every politician.
It might be called “land of the free”
But only for the powers that be.
The rest await their manumission.
But liberation won’t take voice
If all we play is dealer’s choice.
