Welcome to the legislative process of our United States of America;
We hope you will enjoy our fancy words and extraneous details.
I hope you will find some way to bend and manipulate out sordid facts
And mismatched opinions
Into a circumstance beneficial to your person.
Perhaps if you pay close attention
To our overinforming words
You will glean some extracted meaning
Or find a way to get your slice of pie
Or your piece of cake
Or your share of greed and avarice.

Or you could do things more simply;
Take the poem and make it rhyme.
But then you might do something wisely.
And what would you do with all that Time?

I yield the remainder of my time to the gentleman from nowhere.
