Prisons in America
Cost 60 billion a year
A billion for pot crimes,
I'm living in fear.

Homeland Security
Costs 52 billion
Take off your shoes at the airport,
Be a good civilian.

The U.S. military
Is a bargain at 711 billion.
Estimated cost of both wars-
1.6 trillion.

War on drugs
$3,797,048,699 so far this year;
A major success,
That's perfectly clear.

Cost of bailout since '07-
A mere 24 trillion bucks,
Avoided another Great Depression,
Thank God for those schm-cks.

Morally bankrupt
Fiscally conservative,
No dough for healthcare,
How 'bout a derivative?
