Hit 'Em Again, Harder, Harder - Poem by Edwina Reizer

Remember that old football cheer
we all used to yell?
Well, this is the cheer the politicians use
as they put us all through hell.

Just as you think you might be getting ahead,
they hit you again harder with lies you are fed.
When you're too busy trying to make ends meet
they hit you again harder and turn up the heat.

They hit real hard when they hit your pocketbook
and at their tax returns, you'll never get a look.
So now we have a financial crisis staring us in the face.
The collapse of our dollar, which has fallen from grace

We've let them go too far without fighting back.
And like the football game, we need a quarterback sack.
America is falling. We need the 2 minute drill.
But there's not enough bravery so head for the hills.

And if you listen from that hill you might make it to
you'll hear from our Capitol Hill, our red, white and blue
Hit 'em again, hit 'em again harder-harder.
