Deficit Politics Of, By and For the Birds

As we see the devastating impact of climate change
which needs bold investment in societal change,
deficit hawks shrilly squawk over pocket change.

Walmart workers need to rely on Food Stamps
& Hostess employees run out of dough
while the vulture capitalists keep on feeding.

Americans voted to pursue the President's agenda
but the GOP keeps playing their tired old tune
proving incumbents can be the lamest ducks of all.

Hackneyed hawks, vile vultures & daffy ducks
are bigger turkeys than our Thanksgiving feast.
All of it is politics of, by and for the birds.

If you're sick of this Bird Flu, get inoculated
with lefty libations & like-minded friends
at your local progressive social club.
