Every slippery politician
Has a partisan position,
But he’ll soften it with euphemism
To hide his rabid party-ism.
He’ll sweet-talk voters very well
To sell stuff that he’s told to sell,
And he’ll strive to gain affection,
Always seeking re-election.
His wealthy masters let him know
Without their cash, he’d have to go,
And he parrots what they taught him;
Since he’s owned by those who bought him.
