Happy Labor Day!

To all my Worker Sisters and Brothers, Happy Labor Day!
In honor of all that the Tea Party, Koch bros., Johnson/Ryan, Walker have done for us, here is my updated version of Dylan’s “Maggie’s Farm“:
Scotty’s Farm”…
I ain’t gonna work on Scotty’s farm no more No, I aint gonna work on Scotty’s farm no more Well, I go to school in the morning Trying to make knowledge fall like rain I got a head full of ideas That are drivin’ me insane It’s a shame the way he makes my students scrub the floor I ain’t gonna work on Scotty’s farm no more.
I ain’t gonna work for the Koch brothers no more No, I aint gonna work for the Koch brothers no more Well, they hand you a nickel They hand you a dime They ask you with a grin If you’re havin’ a good time Then they fine you every time you slam the door I ain’t gonna work for the Koch brothers no more.
I ain’t gonna work for the Tea Party no more No, I aint gonna work for the Tea Party no more Well, they put their cigar Out in your face, by way of the IRS, just for kicks Their bedroom window It is made out of bricks The National Guard stands around their door Ah, I ain’t gonna work for the Tea Party no more.
I ain’t gonna work for Ryan/Johnson no more No, I ain’t gonna work for Ryan/Johnson no more Well, when they talk to all the servants About man and God and law Everybody says They’re the brains behind fixin’ Obama‘s faux Their IQ is sixty-eight, but they say its a hundred and twenty-four I ain’t gonna work for Ryan/Johnson no more.
I ain’t gonna work on Scotty’s farm no more I aint gonna work on Scotty’s farm no more Well, I try my best To be just like I am But everybody wants you To be just like them They say sing while you slave and I just get floored I ain’t gonna work on Scotty’s farm no more.
