Pigs at the Trough

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” -Edmund Burke

You lost, give it up, so they say
While they take all the progress away
No Clean Air nor clean water
Don’t treat folks as we oughta
Making money’s the rule of the day.

Making money’s the rule of the day
While they ethical standards betray
So ignore people’s needs
At the trough cronies feed
it’s no matter, Trumps do it that way.

Trumps do it that way-we must not!
Keep fighting the evil we’ve got
With friends be inspired,
Keep fighting these liars
The evil will win if we stop.
