One Fibber's Lies 9-19-14


Oh yes, those fibs that he had told,
repeated were, 'til they got old -
by his czars and Congress too.
But those who questioned?  Very few.

He promised 'hope' and promised 'change' -
but what we got was really strange.
Yes!  Keep your doctor, keep your nurse!
Sure!  Keep your wallet and your purse...

Began in Senate, tax bill was,
but care what's legal?  Why, because -
what, promised he, was better than
our current "bad" insurance plan.

So then he took his phone and pen -
and offered bribes again, again,
He offered things that weren't legit -
until it passed (to learn what's in it).

His fibs were sold, retold and cooked -
and oh, the folks who came to look!
His spite, spewed he, among the classes...
festered hate between the masses.

One more fiasco, his 'Exchange'.
Two dozen times his law would change
without the Congress or a bill -
but as a king there on 'the hill'.

Rates too high?  Forget your troubles!
The big surprise?  Deductibles!
 "Affordable", the biggest lie -
now we, the people cry and die.

Yes, some bought in to 'plan' they praised -
then lost their savings to his ways.
Death Panels spy the old and youth.
But some weren't duped.  We knew the truth.

Now 'we the people' scream and shout
until good 'change' will come about.
Protest it in each language spoken:
"You can't fix what isn't broken!"

You lied and lied but cannot force -
Americans to pay, of course -
to corporate greed and CEOs -
whose morals dropped to record lows.*

When selfishness and profits meet,
health care takes the driver's seat.
Deceiving minds of God's creation,
they love money - not the Nation.

Now it's okay they have huge clout
but really, what's it all about?
...health care or huge salaries?
Fair?  Tell us if you please.

It really eats inside my craw
they're living high on mandate's law.
If others pay my health care bill,
responsibilities we'll kill.

From elderly to babe's in cribs,
good health care lost to liar's fibs.
And who will count each one who dies -
because of just one fibber's lies?
