image for Ogre Ogre Turning Right (with apologies to William Blake) "What the anger? What dread hate / Aim you at jobless in your state?"

"I do support unemployment benefits for the 26 weeks that they're paid for. If you extend it beyond that, you do a disservice to these workers." Rand Paul

GOP, now turning right
In the dark and jobless night,
What demonic hand or eye
Could frame thy party symmetry?

In what ways do you despise
The want of food in workers' eyes?
On whose backs do you aspire?
For what gold are you for hire?

What the greed and what dark art
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to pique,
What made you piss on the meek?

Why the poor do you disdain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anger? What dread hate
Aim you at jobless in your state?

When the workers lost their jobs,
And water'd heaven with their sobs,
Did you say, "Oh, go piss off!
Did you who hate the jobless scoff?

GOP, now turning right
In the dark and jobless night,
What demonic hand or eye
Could frame thy party symmetry?
