lines written in my bathrobe
In any other nation on this earth
With politics analogous to ours,
This imputation would be no attack;
How topsy-turvy has our land become,
When "health care for the nation" is a phrase
That politicians flee, or else employ
To discredit their foes? Have we no hope?
Is the electorate so ill-informed
That it will swallow peaceably a stance
So contrary to its int'rest? Is it so?
(The answer is affirmative, I know.)
