Our Extorting Government Digs Us Deeper into Debt

Obama DEBT 2

DEEPER IN DEBT

 

What do you do when you are pushed around by a government

That doesn’t know how to govern but extort?

 

Eighteen trillion tons and

Deeper in debt

St. Peter don’t call me because I am deep shit in debt.

 

Obama’s words were songs

Looking for love in our pain like Adele.

 

He tricked us like a deck of cards

And we lost our savings in the nighttime of his fallen rock stars.

 

Obama is a fan of clichéd Bruce Springsteen.

He’s as corny as Neil Diamond.

It’s a shame he was “Born in the U.S.A.”

 

Someone like you is not you because you are the ego

In the bracelet of charms.

I heard your dreams came true.

You became President and do nothing that you should do.

 

Obama, you are as beautiful as the death of a nation.

Our sadness is the misfortune of our millennials voting

For a jerk in the water of a river to nowhere.
