Election Times
Author: Ben Franklin


Around election time is the only time
you show us some passion,
Around election time we see through your fake compassion.

You tell us to work hard,
so money we make,
Tax us to f*ck,
half you take.

Apparently this year taxes will fall,
thats what you said last time,
what happened?
f*ck all!

So why should we care about a system that does not
care about us?
why should we voice our Opinions
when all you do is turn around and say 'tuff'!

Will our leaders forever fail?
will we look back in the future
and see the lies and Corruption of our governments
are a distant tale?

I truly hope so....
