Hire Me a Crowd

Hire Me a Crowd …

Hire me a crowd to cheer for me

Love me, adore and idolize me

As long as I have them … I don’t need you

Smile at me like I’m number one

Look up to me, pledge loyalty

Hire me a crowd to worship me

Pat me on the back … job well done

Cameras rolling … there’s no doubt I’m the one

I’m the greatest … proof is the crowd who comes to see

Vote for me … you can’t go wrong

Proof’s in the crowd who has come to see

Look at the numbers … I am the one

Sh-hhh, don’t say that for anyone to hear!

They don’t know I had to hire a crowd to come

No one knows … no one would have come … not even one!

I had to hire a crowd for me

To show how popular I am you see

No one ever knowing not even one would come see me

This is the trend in today’s time

Nothing is ever as it appears on tv

No one knowing better … the crowd’s been hired by me

We all know everything we see on tv

Is true … never no doubt

That’s why … I hired a crowd, you see

Vote for me as your president

I’ll lead you somewhere … don’t know where yet

I want to look my best to my crowd … I’ll think about that later

When I get to be president I’ll learn what to do

For now, I’m most popular, idolized

Proof’s in the crowd I hired for you to see!

I was inspired to write this by something I saw on the news this morning.  I couldn’t believe, yet in today’s time … nothing is ever what it appears to be.  I should have known this was happening, also.

People go the easy way, cheat to get to where they are going … never batting an eye or feeling guilty.  No matter how fair, not fair … they get away with doing this.  Money is the name of the game.

It’s sad because when we vote someone into office … we look at the crowds around them, see how they react towards the candidate.  When you hire a crowd, you’ll get the best … they’ll love you to death, and give a good showing.  So, how can one lose when ‘everyone loves you’ … proof is in the crowd, you see.
