I’m Fed Up 

I’m fed up – I’m outski- your nonsense confounds me
Why all these psychic demands?
The system’s not working’- it’s Cowboy Circle Jerkin'
Holy COW there’s dog poop on our hands
 
A two-party system makes teamwork a problem
It’s us versus them all the time
My patience is thinning as some sit there grinning
This dialogue is nearly a crime
 
I’m fed up! I just can’t take another bite
I’m fed up! We gotta make it right
I’m fed up! I’m stuffed with all the lies
I’m fed up and I can’t get up - without help!
 
Polarized Politics highlights a bunch of dicks
Who sidestep the issues at hand
Moneyed endorsements can focus the forces
Buying votes for their various camps
 
This voter is wary and somewhat contrary
When nonsense is thrust in her hands
I need to regroup from all of the dog poop
I’ve wrangled and scooped like a champ
 
I’m fed up! I just can’t take another bite
I’m fed up! We gotta make it right
I’m fed up! I’m stuffed with all the lies
I’m fed up and I can’t get up - without help!
 
I don’t want the chatter of pundits to matter
But elections are coming in hot
The stigma of dogma and two-party karma
Common goals are what should stir the pot
 
It’s easier to be smart and pick from the card sharks
When info is easily noted
Focus on clearing away the poop smearing
Evaluate which way they have voted!
 
I’m fed up! I just can’t take another bite
I’m fed up! We gotta make it right
I’m fed up! I’m stuffed with all the lies
I’m fed up and I can’t get up - without help!
