The Conservationist


and the manufacturers too

all say

We do your thinking.  You must conform.  That’s our message to you.”

Americans are all set

by ignoring the threat

knowing this green movement’s a scam

The ultimate aim

a very large gain

taken by pennies right out of your hand

The old ways are dust

the infrastructure turned to rust

the billionaires tuck their money away

With our silly pride

we’ll stay quiet and hide

hoping we won’t rue the day.

We are up to our gills with all of their bills to another tax burden say “Nay”.

Re-evaluate the nexus

know that politicians create the messes

while taxing us this very day

Please give democracy your vote

please don’t be a dope

the ballot box is where you can say.

…and don’t waste my rhyme

with your “…haven’t got the time”

and don’t cry when they take half your pay.
