Audacity of Hope or Tenacity of Nope?

We can’t not come to the table!
That wouldn’t be very nice.
We can’t only tax the rich more -
We all must sacrifice.
We can’t sacrifice the good for the perfect.
Be happy with your little slice!
We can’t expect to have change now.
Impatience is a vice.
We can’t not wage war - folks are suffering…
We’ll manage despite the price.
We can’t afford to give out government cheese,
But here’s five pounds of rice.
