Drug testing for employment, not welfare (a poem)
We work, we toil through every day,
Seeking somehow to make our way.
We pay our taxes as we should,
To contribute to the greater good.
We honestly try to observe the rules,
Even the rules bad made by fools.
But why in the world should it ever be,
That we’re the ones required to pee?
As employees we must pass that test,
To bleed our bladders on request;
Proving that we’re fit to pay
Our taxes that somehow go astray.
And end up in the hands of those
With no demand to drain their hose;
No urine needed for them to collect
My drug-free funded welfare check.
Somehow I think there’s something missing
When only producers must prove by pi**ing.
