Political Game

Copyrighted April 10,2009

At one time we got along with our own country
Their was a time we where friends even got along with other countries,
But now no one wants to be friends with our country, because of President Bush.

We use to feed the hungry plus clothes the poor & middle class in our country
Now we let them starve on the streets with no soup kitchens or food banks 0% food,
But we have the money to give to NASA or the military even to give to other countries for food plus clothes.

We use to pay for low income housing for the poor with middle class in our country
Now we let them live on the streets with no warmth or coolness even shelter,
But we have the money to give for government with their raises even to give to other countries.

We use to pay for health care for the poor with middle class in our country
Now we let them pay or go with out health care they have to chose for food or medications,
But we have the money to give for war or to send up spy satellites even to give to other countries.

We still pay for roads with bridges for our country
Now where is the money going, because the roads some times gets done
& the bridges are crumbing part in to water not being cared for at all,
But we have the money to give for a space station even to give to other countries.

We pay taxes in our country
The people that foreclosed on their homes got screwed,
The banks with mortgage companies gave bad loans got their money from the government twice.

So who pays and who loses here a political game.
