Help Wanted - A poem about congress

By Carol Smith


Help Wanted

There’s a job that pays big money
Where no matter what you earn
Satisfaction’s not the product
You’re expected to return

You’ll go to parties, be on TV
And while schmoozing the elite
Claim allegiance to the middle class
But never walk their street

Collaboration you will welcome
Only if you get your way
Or else pouting in stagnation’s
Where you stubbornly will stay

In addition, those who hired you
Have so very little clout
You’ll have lots of time to screw things up
Before they throw you out

And if you wonder who, could in this job
Out distance all the rest
Well when it comes to hardly working
The members of Congress work the best
