“Abracadabra!” Says Obama

Abracadabra, thus we learn

The more you create, the less you earn.

The less you earn, the more you’re given,

The less you lead, the more you’re driven,

The more destroyed, the more they feed

The more you pay, the more they need

The more you earn, the less you keep,

And now I lay me down to sleep.

I pray the Lord my soul to take

If some Soul Commission hasn’t got it before I wake.

— by Ogden Nash in the 1930s, sent to me by a DrHurd.com reader who found it in the Notable & Quotable section in the Wall Street Journal.
