Tis of Thee

The nation needs your compliance,
If you’re willing.
I am, for enough money, sure.
It might be hard
To live with you’ll be doing.
But I may be
Able to eat my guilt away.

He died the next week.
The patten repeated,
A number of times.
Until, eventually,
The program was cut.

It was inefficient
Or too expensive
Or they found a better way.
