The only way, a political poem
The only way
I understand the point of view
and I would really like to help.
I have come up with a simple way
for us to solve the problem.
The problem is the poor people
they are everywhere, we see them
in doorways and under bridges,
there is one in every motion picture.
So I think that we should give them money
that is what they truly need right?
We should continue giving them money
until they have enough to buy that fancy house
that we have always dreamed of
or that Porsche convertible
the one with the red paint.
That is what they really need right?
They need all that fancy stuff,
all that stuff that we don’t have,
that stuff that we can live without.
They obviously can’t live without it.
Who would be audacious enough
to think that they can?
What kind of horrible beast would not give?
I am not a horrible beast
so I will give them all I have,
and if that is not enough,
I’ll take a loan and give them what I don’t have,
How else do we solve the problem?
