I'm Just A Bill Named AB2072

Political Cartoon of the Week

I'M JUST A BILL NAMED AB2072

I'm just a bill
Named AB2072
People still
Argue about me all day
Yes, I'm only a bill
And I'm sitting here in the California State Senate
Well, its a long, long journey
To the hill
It's a long, long wait
While I'm sitting in committee,
But I know I'll be a law someday
At least I hope and pray that I will,
But today I am still just a bill.

I'm just a bill
People still
Argue about me all day
But when I'm a law someday
I will
Make big changes in people's lives
Such as drilling holes in babies' heads
And sending deaf children off to oral schools
Where they will learn to keep down their hands,
Not to sign,
Not to wave like those ASL fools,
But to speak and sit still
It'll be just like in the old days

I'm just a bill
Yes, I'm only a bill
Named AB 2072
Waiting for the Governor to sign
Me, just me
So I can make big changes in people's lives

You'll thank me one day
People still
Argue about me all day
But I know I'll be a law someday
It'll be back to the old days
At least I hope and pray I will,
But today I am still just a bill.

Greetings, folks!

Don, thanks...Mike's brazen post requires a brazen response. ;)

Dragon and Ashely, thank you too for your kind comments. Ashely, I'll check out that link...well, I would share this with more people but I've a lot to do on my hands. However, the Stop AB2072 Campaign is welcome to use my illustrations and song to spread the message. All the best to them!
