Co-Leaders (Or good cop - bad cop)

So what is a devil?
Is it religious
or cultural?

He works for the corporate man
who we call Mr. Big

The devil works hard for Mr. Big
he is ambitious
and self righteous
he is smart
and has been well screened
and watched
and tested
and trained
(that missing year in the bio)

The promise was made
when the white house deal
was cut
likely over a whiskey
in the padded leather chairs
inside the dark wooden walls

Obama gets to be prez
McCain took the fall
like a good wrestler would
McCain gets to 'serve'
as sort of hidden
to guide the young man
to run the military arm
for Mr. Big

Some say its a good job
but only a few dare apply
there are strings attached
and anyone who values
their heart
can't chance it

Today they both
ordered the war planes
up along the bear's border
that disputed border
we can't really see from here
because it is so far away

But that is why we have CNN
its their job to fill our heads
with what Mr. Big wants us to hear

Mr. Big wants control of everything
but there are a few places
on the spinning orb
that don't want to hand the store keys
over to our mobsters

They all seem to play
dirty at times in this dirty world

Who are we to love and cheer,
to side with?
Who is righteous?

Back here at home the clock winds onward
many move on to daily chores and such
Mr. Big keeps working his magic
and then some...
He has the devil on his side.
