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.
