The State Giveth and Taketh Away

Society, we the people shout,
From State oppression let us out.
Give us liberty or give us death,
Rights to pursue joy, peace, and breath.

State, the representatives declare,
You’ll have checks against our authority,
in a constitution you can bear,
and the right to seek prosperity.

Society, we the struggling seek,
relief from hardship economic.
Give us temporary assistance.
For our financial woes a tonic.

State, we the governing altruists,
will provide to you a helping hand.
Just give a little more in taxes
and resign prosperity and land.

Society, the downtrodden whine,
Give us goodies, benefits, and gain.
We crave the good life we can’t provide,
which we are unwilling to attain.

State, we the authority require,
the rich impoverished must become.
For the State to enrichen the mire,
you must lose economic freedom.

Society, the addicted cry,
The rich have left, give us jobs and health.
We have no idea what else to give.
We’ve given you our freedom and wealth.

State, we the dictatorship reply,
Your jobs, health, goodies, and rights are lost.
You shall be our slaves until you die.
oppression over you is the cost.

Society, we the people shout,
From State oppression let us out.
Give us liberty or give us death,
Rights to pursue joy, peace, and breath.
