frybread sonnet #022: IOWA CAUCUSES

We get what we deserve, also what we allow.
Only natural during current four-decade
oligarchy growth that branded people would vow
allegiance to billionaires, beyond well-paid

but looking to maintain bizness as usual -
an abomination against social contract
where governing body guarantees mutual
benefit of all people (not parties); we've backed

these bastards for years with "yeah, but which would be worst?"
We get what we allow, also what we deserve,
so billionaire president or a former first
lady with eight-digit net worth, not apt to serve

people, still makes sense, makes dollars, makes us believe
freedom brand marketing's still "working"... so naive.
