Another day older (a poem)

Another day older and deeper in debt.

I did not borrow any money and yet

I surely owe over eight thousand dollars more today.

If you add my wife, that is sixteen thousand to pay.

Where are you George when we need you most?

The horses have already left the post.

The race is on so you had better beware.

Shepherd your money and take the greatest care.

Consider his promises then take note

To think hard the next time before you vote.

He takes it from some to give to those who shirk.

Keep this up and there will be no one to work.

He uses all of your money as grand political tools.

Shield men from the effects of folly and fill the world with fools.*
