Campaigning for Cash

Buy me a latte,
I’ll love you a latte
don’t expect me to remember
your name or
even say hi
we meet
for another cup
of coffee
(your treat)

I have a cause
please donate
to my cause
I’ll fight
for something
for me
I can’t guarantee
it’s worthy
my cause
could be
for our right
to eat extra stuffing
with turkey
and gravy

I need you
you see?
My bills stacked
and my stomach’s angry
you won’t like it
when my stomach’s angry
I can tell
you that

Send me
a small sum
I’ll make you this
I vow
I won’t
run for governor
or aspire
to be
the people’s president
I’ll leave
to the cows.
