What I Love

by David Hedges

I love locking kids in cages,
Cutting taxes for the rich,
Shrugging at starvation wages,
Branding forceful women “Bitch.”

I love ogling shapely buns,
Handing jobs to nincompoops,
Shielding creeps who carry guns,
Praising neo-fascist groups.

I love preaching to the flock,
Forcing farmers on the dole,
Spouting lies and double-talk,
Deepening the fiscal hole.

I love stiffing diplomats,
Blocking scans of tax returns,
Bashing left-wing Democrats,
Golfing while the planet burns.
