They Get What You Pay For

Oh, woe! The Joes say, “No.”
Tweedledee and Tweedledumb agree:
War? Spend freely. Peace? Go slow.
Manchin, Biden: urinate or pee.

Trousers, diapers soil the same.
Shit or defecate, mere choice of words.
Donors rule. The people? Tame.
Schiff and Cheney: Siamese twin turds.

Democrats. What can one say?
Wannabe Republicans for rent.
Call them “Leftists,” they’ll obey.
“Always Further Right” → the way they went.

Really. What did you expect?
President and Senator for you?
Cast your vote, then genuflect.
Money purchased not one Joe, but two.
