Social Security- There Is No Free Lunch - Poem by Nadalia Bagratuni

There is no such such thing as a free lunch,
There is no such thing a social security lock box,
Then why do the politician types,
Talk to us and give us all this hype,

They know better than that,
But do we better than them?

This is problem in our society,
We are all looking for something free!

Some look for free lunches,
Other for tax loop holes,
Still other look for us,
They don't have to plot or plan, they think we won't listen,
And these are our politicians!

They go to Washington,
And learn how to get around,
In this process they find out,
What politics is really all about!

it is about robbing Peter to pay Paul,
They explain it wasn't reall a robbery,
It is just like a game.

You see in the world of politics,
There are no rights and wrongs.
You are always right until you get caught,
And when you are caught,
Your defense is without a doubt,
Well they elected me,
Obviously they wanted me,
To serve this nation and provide,
More jobs and a great deal of pride.
I've done both and now I boast,
I did it different then most.
I lied!
