Lotus lemons

They bought all lemons from all farms
To fake a market scarcity.
And when the price went seven-fold
They railed for gov’ment charity.

The gov’ment’s conches drowned it all.
They blamed it on a scowling sun.
The lotus loafers booed and claimed
They’ll get the lemons by the ton.

And so, upon the ballot day,
The lotus loyals loaded carts
With lemon, sugar, salt, and ice
To cool the voters’ thirsting hearts.
