I Believe in Uncle Sam

Oh every year on Christmas Eve
I climb into my bed,
And dream of gifts I know will come
From Santa and his sled.
For Santa brings me this and that,
And other things for free.
So I believe in Santa Claus
And what he does for me.
The Easter Bunny does the same
With malted eggs and sweets.
So I believe he must exist
To furnish me with treats.
My Uncle Sam is kinder still,
And not just once a year!
By magic, every single month,
He makes a check appear.
So I believe in Uncle Sam,
With faith that’s tried and true,
And stronger when the things I get
Were lately owned by you.

My goal is to produce poetical cartoons. I try to use metaphors and caricatures (or a politician’s own words) to address complex political and social situations. In this way, I sum up current events in humorous verse.
