The Paper Chase

The socialist caucus
Now running Caracas
Is on the hot seat in the polls.
The national issue?
A shortage of tissue
That common folk purchase in rolls.
The problem is vivid.
The public is livid,
As price controls wipe out supply.
Now people are queuing
In hopes of accruing
A super absorbent two-ply.

The previous autumn
The market hit bottom,
When need far exceeded demand.
Which happens when masses
Are ruled by asses,
And finish with nothing in hand.
As public opinion
Throughout the dominion
Continues its negative trend,
The socialist caucus
Now running Caracas
Says all will be well in the end.
