Script is set

that’s what you get

for going around being

in ordure to form
a more profitable Corporation
concealed in Liberty
and dedicated to the propped position
that all money is created equal

Will you vote for that?

Or sit on the bleak cheers waiting to see
how it all falls out? 

NO, Peep-Hole!
This is our rodeo!
We gotta put on our boots—
those big shit-stompers–
and saddle up for the chute. 

You gotta rope ‘em and ride ‘em
at Rancho Politico.
Gotta hold your nose and vote!
