“Do as we say and not as we do,” A phrase that’s familiar to me and to you. The biggest proponent of this credo I quote? Politicians elected when you and I vote. First our own governor, while riding along In a vehicle owned by the state we belong, Unbuckled and speeding, against laws he’d condoned, Crashed and the governor was nearly de-boned. And now on the west coast in a state sponsored car, A senator traveled in the car she’d soon mar When she smashed the rear end a man with his tot While talking away on a cell phone she’s got. Last year she approved and voted to pass, Should you drive in a car and are giving it gas, A law that prohibits your cell phone in use And a fine she provided for the statute’s misuse. Their pedigree pure as a Croatian Sheepdog, With a conscious as clear as a Florida fog, A breed of humanity whose DNA screens Into twisted paired couples of duplicitous genes.
