Charity Begins Where? (a poem)

What?  Give away my money?  I think not!

What you're suggesting is a Conservative plot


To part me from my savings

I prefer the Clintonian way.

Reach into the Government pocket

And distribute the peoples' pay.


The Right Leaning sillies may be

Foolish enough to share

Their time and their hard earned money

With their neighbors in despair,


But I'm a Modern Liberal.

I've learned from Albert Gore

That by taking from the Middle Class,

Giving less is more.


Apparently, it has been noted

Liberals tend to be miserly.

So Conservatives  are 30% more generous?

Better them than me.
