A Voter’s Paradise

All of those attending school
Will get it paid for, as a rule
And all of those who don’t feel up
To working jobs still make a buck.

Doctors, nurses, surgery
Do pristine work, completely free!
For your baby (if you keep it),
You’ll never worry how to feed it.

And parents wanting free day care
Will have a government au pair.
For your dog or cat; chinchilla
Vets will never, ever bill ya.

And all the lawns will get a mow
And all the driveways, free of snow.
Heck! Any leaks or cracks or breaks
Are covered, FREE, make no mistakes!

Food will grow without a weed
Fulfilling everybody’s needs
And, though y’all are sitting ’round
A fat person will not be found.

Your bank accounts will all be full
And backyards all will have a pool.
A mansion’s waiting for your lives;
A sports car’s waiting for your drives.

There’s nothing anyone will want
There’s nothing anyone will need…

Don’t you see?
A vote for me,
Will make things nice:
A paradise.

    OMG! Since I’m too old to enjoy all the free stuff, I guess I’ll get in line to help pay for it.

    What a way to live?! πŸ˜¬πŸ™„ I want to do a survey of futuristic books and movies and see what exactly people do with their time in these supposed advanced societies when they eliminate the need to work .

    I would have voted for you but I didn’t see any promise of two chickens in every pot.

      True. People would rather have the chicken come as a wrapped sandwich these days, with a free cleanup afterwards!
