Spinding


That which we have not commandeered
We think of as expense,
For seeing what is thine as ours,
To us makes perfect sense.

We ought, we think as well, to say
What is the right amount,
That you should earn, possess, or hold
Within your bank account.

And furthermore, a mandate seems
To be the perfect tool,
To see that everyone will join
Our new insurance pool.

Now some may say we’ve overstepped
The Constitution’s lines,
But we have judges on the team
Approving our designs.

So stop complaining, get in line,
And give us your consent,
Or we shall mark you with the brand
We give the one percent.

  1. The judges give me little comfort, Bard. One has to wonder if mankind is capable of maintaining a republic?
