This is How Bad Things Really Are

She was an hispanic woman
her first day working at a title pawn

I walked in, to pay my loan
and she apologized
because she didn't know how to file a payoff

The annual percentage rate
was something like 400%
and there used to be a law against it
But republicans voted it down

And we were talking
about the election

She nodded her head and said something
about the republican candidate
and so I mentioned
that there was a man
who ran for truth
and justice
and reform

And she finally recognized his name
and her supervisor was watching her carefully
as I paid out my loan

She remarked
of Bernie Sanders

"I'm surprised they even let him run"
