When Doing What is Right Is Not Doing What Is Wrong!

Maybe everyone should take a momment to reflect,
To comment on what everyone suspects,
Maybe it is much better to be an example of what's right
Than to be the enemy of the political might.
It's okay in politics, to beg for money,
Plead your case,
And even leave your office in disgrace.
Now, in many jobs you think this to be funny,
However, in the city of Washington D.C.
There is only one decree,
Raise the money,
Sell your soul,
Sell your principles,
Everything must go.
However, when you are caught,
Beg the questions,
Stonewall and get re-elected.
If this is impossible then just quit,
After all, it is only just the Fall.
The ballots are printed, shipped and stacked,
Can't we hurry and get them all back!
What happened to the people who obey the law,
Follow the rules,
A actually believe to do on to others like you would do on to me?
No, today, Washington is full of people who will do onto you,
Before you do on to them.
The only problem is this is not right!
Oh, that's not a problem,
With a stroke of a pen,
A decision of court,
We will take the opinion to court of the highest opinion-
Our polling group.
Forget what is right,
Forget what is true ,
Forget to stay in a fight,
Just tell me when you are tired,
And I will tell you when you are through.
Give me your tired and your poor,
I will change them again,
Not into a melting pot,
But into a hot fire,
Now is doing right,
Not really doing what is wrong?
Wait a minute, just ask me again after I have gotten the judge's opinion!
