Pie

INVITATION TO PIE
HUMBLE PIE

The Pundits and the Politicians
never blinked an eye
when no WMDs were found
They just kept the fear mongering going
In fact, they just rewrite history
to match their theories
The “Mission Accomplished” sign
is no longer in the picture

Speaking of theories
How’s trickle down economics
working for you
Now that was a promise
of pie in the sky
What trickled down were crumbs
A share of the pie
that’s not enough to sustain
the disappearing middle class

Then there’s the Corporate Media
News stations that encourage
old people to wear teabags
on their ears and carry signs
that say “No Socialized Medicine”
while most of them are on
Medicare

Yep, those Pundits and those Politicians
may have a finger in every pie
but we know what pie
they never eat
