ALEC Drives The Legislative Bus

A clone of sorts
ALEC aborts freedom
For the masses
Sets up classes
Schools your legislator
To stab you in the back
You regular Joe Schmoe
Otherwise known as the
Electoral populace ignorant
Lazy apathetic gonna get
What you deserve for not
Keeping your eye on the ball
In charge of telling them
What to and what not to do
Ha ha right!
ALEC to the rescue
A paper mill masterful
In legal sleaze aiming to
Put the corporations
In charge of all that matters
To them regardless of any
Harm the American Legislative
Exchange Council might cause
The enemy which is you, imagine that!
In case you didn't know, you're being
Thrown under the bus so much
They laugh behind your back
Calling you pancakes of champions!
That it then it's up to you to
Keep an eye on the scoundrel's pens.
