Minimum Wage As a Cage

Only a true liberal would advocate as a jobs plan
To move millions from the unemployment line
A huge increase in the minimum wage
Thereby dooming millions more to the jobless cage
Our young be they in high school, just out or in college or just out
Need jobs no matter how transitory to learn what the work force is all about
Minimum wage workers do not stay at minimum wage
It usually only the first step in life's many stages
But you cannot take the steps to improve
To improve increasing self worth to sooth
If you cannot get the first job even if only minimum wage
You are doomed to be stuck in the government handout cage
It takes not a rocket scientist to know to no one's surprise
Less jobs especially unskilled when the minimum rises
Obama remains clueless on the chaos small business must reluctantly embrace
From Obamacare to regulations' heavy to taxes deterring hiring a new face
He knows only tax and spend and like the Romans more benefits to the poor in the cage
We should be to protect the jobless marching in total outrage
