Drug testing for employment, not welfare (a poem)

Russ Vaughn
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.
