He rose in the class, hand over his heart
And spoke of his future career
“The political ring’s where I’ll throw my hat
I love the applause and the cheers.”
“I’ll learn all the buzzwords, and then make some up
Like mandate and flexible goals.
Ecoelastic alternative tax
With built-in confusing loopholes.
“Inflation, deflation, reliable source
I’ll climb the political rungs
