The Haves And The Have Nots

Obama has skillfully played the race card and the class warfare card, and has turned the United States into a country severely divided between the haves and the have-nots. But the war between the haves and have-nots was never an equal one.


The war between haves and have-nots never was

A fair fight twixt hoe and the lance

The contest was never an equal event

The have-nots had never a chance

The problems arose ‘tween the haves and the haves

Who jostled for women and gold

And land and fast horses and trade routes and such

A pastime that never grew old

Today we the have-nots have put away hoes

The haves keep their lances in vaults

They still steal the women, fast horses and gold

While dancing that old lancer’s waltz
