Are you better off now than four years ago?–Tiresome campaign meme.
What I am, is four years older.
That’s not the change I voted for.
I’ve got this big Manila folder
Labeled “Hope” here in the drawer.
I’m not getting better off in
Any way, as time will tell.
When they put me in my coffin
I’ll just be changing rooms in Hell.
Spare me all your cute banalities
Don’t expect me to rejoice.
Four more years of root canalities
Isn’t my idea of “choice.”
Life is only what you make it
Don’t give presidents the blame
Existentialists can’t fake it
I’m voting for him all the same.
