Dead Money (Stimulus checks sent to the deceased)

by Daniel Benson

Dead men tell no lies,
Yet to them the money flies.
They tell us government didn't know,
Yet somehow to them the money did flow.

Social Security lost a lot,
Around two million, what a cash crop!
Ten thousand checks to the dead, so they say,
And dead men will cash them anyway!

Money missing that you pay,
And this government just dies to give it away.
Missing money and checks mailed--
For such negligence they should be jailed!

Around two million unaccounted for,
Yet they choose to underscore.
When will we as a nation awake?
Too late, and too bad we didn't see the break.

Those Political Parties

by Daniel Benson

Two political parties, though really the same,
Many voters they can claim.
Yet no difference in my view,
Though the parties, they say, are two.
Socialists they claim abound,
Yet they forget to look around.

Many people they call friend
Still are socialists to the end.
Senator Arlen Spector wanted to switch,
Yet when they're the same, which is which?
So to the masses I proclaim
Is this thought of "two" not just insane?

When two parties "differences" they desire,
Yet to do the same things they conspire.
So I ask, just what they find true,
Since they can't make out red or blue.
These parties that say they are two
Really are one when brought into view.

To the politicians this I say,
"Please, why don't you go away?"
Liars, cheaters, that's what most are.
This I can see from afar.
Government small should be,
Nationally or locally.

So wake up America!
Your government's taking your freedoms to task,
And how long will this country last?
Part of a one-world government I will not be.
Politicians take our kids away
And public schools mold them into slaves of clay.

Health reform is just a joke,
Your new doctor may be English country folk.
Your car will make its way, the ocean to cross,
While China,Yugoslavia, and Africa await your loss.
So little time and money you see,
But voters next year we may not be.

So to end my political rant,
When honest politicians are oh, so scant,
America again may never be,
Except as part of the Communist tree.
