Outta the way!” What makes it all especially hard The heifer wants to use a debit card The one that food stamps replaced And on low incomes it is based Some of her items don’t qualify Thus, it’s impossible them to buy “If for dog food the debit card won’t take, That’s okay because Fido will eat steak.” By the time the mess is all sorted out If she’ll get checked Meg does doubt The woman got her groceries free Leaving Meg as mad as can be
