Budget and the Axe

There’s more than those ones which you’ve heard
like giving the axe to big bird
Take a look at what’s chopping
It’s more than dance hopping
There’s big loss for the poor that’s occurred.

Yes, there’s loss for the poor that’s occurred
Legal aid, meals on wheels-we’re assured-
Just get rid of them all!
Instead build the Wall
Tax payers would rather, Trump heard.

Tax payers would rather, Trump heard
I think that his values are blurred!
So he’ll dump the school lunch
It’s only a hunch
That improvement with grades might occur.

Improvement with grades might occur
Or might not, but still to be sure
For many each day
It keeps hunger at bay
Which should be the goal we prefer.
