They fought it for 50 grim years.
They cried and wailed about child-labor laws,
Dollar signs mixed with their tears.
They so hated Social Security,
They cast a unanimous nay,
It offends their values when old folks are paid,
To be useless and just in the way.
Their sinister scheme to starve the government,
Hurts we the people. That’s us!
While we foot the bill for congressional pay,
They’re plotting to blow up our bus!
Stingy and mean as junk-yard dogs,
This surly crowd pledges to fight,
For your FREEDOM! To struggle, starve and die,
As long as it’s done out of sight.
