Combine peaches gone real bad
with crushed nuts.
Add infinite amounts of soured cream,
spoiled milk and raw rotten eggs.
Serve the whole undercooked mess
on cheap plastic platters
with a note signed
“Care of Not Your Comrades
aka the under-served, over-taxed,
misrepresented people of the United States!”
