A Vote for Nixon

The politicians danced around town

Telling all the people what they wanted to hear

Their promises came wrapped in the fine clothes of prosperity

Our town would ‘reap great rewards

Absolutely no one will be left out’ they shouted

They filled the air with hopes and dreams

All the men heard the news at town hall meetings

And gatherings around their watering holes

They carried it home to their wives

Those were happy days

Anticipating all the good things to come

The politicians came and went…

Their promises came and went…

Their prosperity never came at all.
