Ode to the Welfare State

Today's poem was found on the internet. It was published by the Associated Press in 1949. According to the article header, this poem was included in the U.S. Congressional Record in a last minute "sneaky" move.

This blog does not make political statements and this poem is added to my blog for it's historic value and humor. . . . . . no opinion or endorsement is intended.



In the United States, we are over a year away from national elections and already we are being swamp by political posturing and television messages; To which my reaction is. . . . . . .
