Action And Emotion
An action can influence an emotion,
So if a kinsman, say, goes to Kingdom Come,
And you find you can’t cry,
Try wiping a dry eye,
And then, lo-and-behold, the tears may come.
What’s Good For The Goose
Health care reform efforts have gotten us nowhere.
So Trump could give members of Congress a scare.
An executive order
Should seem to be in order.
It would put them all under Obamacare.
There’s something that isn’t properly understood.
There’s no big difference between luck and good.
What I am trying to say
Is things will likely go your way,
If you chose to live your life as you should.
Unless Trump exercises real leadership,
Immigration is an issue that just won’t quit.
Many illegals work hard,
So it shouldn’t be that hard,
To create a path for them to citizenship.
Venezuelan troops get toilet paper,
So these heroes are happy on the crapper.
But the lower-classes
Should wipe their asses
With Maduro’s shitty socialist newspapers.
