by scott from jail

They said today
That Democrats will lose big time,
The house, senate, and presidency
All to the right
Which has given us
For so long
That the bloody trail of Iraq
Now costs us nothing
Because we are so happy, safe and fine.   But in these
I find no hope.
I am tired of what they say today.
They know I am tired of what they say.
And with greedy eyes
They see our future
Bumbling into their hopeful hands.
Blood and caked on oil are on those hands.
Leaving fingerprints black and grimy.
That's what they said today.
