Things Governments Are (Apparently) Good At

To tell our teachers what to teach
Is governmental overreach—
In doing so, of course, you breach
The constitution

A government is not complex
Just big enough in some respects
To say who can and can’t have sex…
And executions.

    Yup. I’ve never understood how people think the government can’t do anything right are able to make exceptions for killing people.

    D.C., I’ve always been amazed by your metrical superpowers, and your frequent choice of complex rhyming patterns, but sometimes short and sweet is best. This is the best.
