Knotted work-boot laces diverted past
loop-holes clogged by Armani and Italian leather.
Minivans in traffic jams
on the limousine packed beltway...
workers scrounging for coins taking it's toll
as lawmakers are escorted 'round the booth.

Polishing marble floors scuffed by
lobbyists dragging heels in the capitol halls.
Unpaid lunch break doctor's visit...
out-of-pocket treatment leaving little dough
for evening bread, while freeloaders
eat cooked alive crustaceans and sip fizzy wine
after a toast to cutting the safety net.
