Two-Party Blues, a song lyric


TWO-PARTY BLUES

Don’t like me no Democrats, but them Republicans is worse
Don’t like me no Democrats, but Republicans is even worse
The one leads me to swearin’ and the other makes me curse

One blames the other and the other blames the one
One blames the other and the other just blames the one
As long as they’re fightin’ no work is gettin’ done.

When they’re two sides of the coin, which one do you choose?
Right hand washes the left, got them two-party blues

Both like them bankers and they aim to please
Both like them bankers’ money and they aim to please
Take them to the White House and hand them the keys

Lesser of two evils seems to be my only choice
Lesser of two evils is gonna be my only choice
No matter which way I vote, will anyone hear my voice?

When they’re two sides of the coin, which one do you choose?
Right hand washes the left, got them two-party blues

Pretty much tongue-in-cheek, of course, and not meant as a serious song.

I haven't been here much lately. Too much else in my life at the moment and I've been a bit depressed. Or more depressed than usual. Being a care-giver full time can be a little much occasionally and watching my mom decline weighs. It's becoming increasingly difficult to get her to eat and drink; anything else I can handle but that is something that may eventually be beyond me.
