Newt did well in the debate -
He sneered at those who moderate.
Certainly got folks rapt attention
To him they gave a loud ovation
They stomped and yelled in adulation.
He says he’s out to help the poor
To learn the skills in fending for
Themselves, i. e., to find a way
to get a job, collect some pay,
and look for opportunities
within their own communities
to find a better job that may
lead to ownership some day.
But what Newt doesn’t understand
Is that poor folks in our troubled land
Don’t need his helping hand to score
A job – most hold one or more.
And they don’t need some rich elitist
To tell them not to be defeatist.
They want more pay for what they do
And jobs that have a future, too.
So Newt, please stifle your advice
Your condescension isn’t nice
And though it wins you some applause
It doesn't help the poor folks’ cause.
