Grim Reaper Politicians
I am the shadows
Of the grim reaper results
That wastes away in seclusion
In the living suicide of survival
Haunting nails holding coffin doors.
Clinging mists of graven memories
Drift to wander lost quicksand quagmire
Of bleeding thorns bearing Scarlet Letters
Pit bulls in vile venom Katrina mind frames.
Floating corpses living in drowning debt
With that Wall St Bailout Bonus compassion.
CEO immigration that uses illegal workers
To then Whitman deny them as Politicians.
The Republican Corporate corrections solution
Making profit in human misery by imprisonment,
By creating Corporate laws that legislatures use
To imprison women and children immigrants -
Indefinite in detention denied due process fees.
The Republican Insurance equation that takes premiums
To then deny them; making homeowners still pay them,
To stay in homes - that are not covered – and are still paying IOU dues,
While bankers profit in wrong premiums of Subprime conditions.
The Bush Madoff solution to invest in Wall St Social Security Keoghs.
The Corporate decision that used pensions as private bank accounts.
Republicans saying Social Security, Medicare, and Health Care are illegal
That welfare must pay the rich Corporate farms, and Bridges to Nowhere.
I am the blue collar blues of America’s neighborhoods blight,
Who elect officials that then go to work making their Fortune 500.
Soon they become strangers going from blue jeans to Palin wardrobes.
One asks why, they never come down to street level mainstream people.
But then the campaign funds are like the Who’s Who of business interests
Buying legislators off to then work with corporate lawyers with expense accounts.
Wham bam, thank you ma’am and sir for your vote, but I have to get going
To meet my Country Club family. Then for years, they disappear, to Ritz hotels,
Coming back for a quickie wham bam now and then.
Remember when we had a Middle Class Politician, oh those good ole days.
When they worked for “We the people” colored in Red, White, and Blue pride.
Believed in God Bless Made In American Dreams for our children futures
That our Lady Liberties wombs generated generations of working solutions.
Who are these inbred traitors, who are selling off America and outsourcing us?
We can help the world, but we then cannot become the Grim Reaper shadows
Living suicide in survival Gaza strips bearing haunting tombs called homes
That looks like a Katrina after math of government bulldozed political neglect.
And then, I look at Democrats White Collar grim reapers
That have forgotten America’s History and Heritage.
Where Blacks now are no longer colored
In the Red, White, and Blue neighborhoods of American diversity.
But are the Tiger Woods sports stars of widening economic segregation.
They are Charter members of Private Schools, over Public School MLK dreams.
But today, thanks to the Grim Reaper White Collars
The crack is moving into a Grand Canyon of racial equality.
Willing the work
For public interests
Promise not to go
On a Corporate payroll,
But swear allegiance
To “We the people”
Who will elect them
As voter employees.
