Oh EDD, how you make people hate thee
Twas weeks before Christmas and all across the state,
the unemployed waited by mailboxes, checks several weeks late.
Bills went unpaid and rents way past due,
And lil’ Johnny and Susie wanting new christmas shoes.
A fourteen week extension, meant all should be merry,
but ancient EDD computers argue quite the contrary.
A system upgrade in waiting since 2002
Now seven years too late and it’s all I-O-U.
Now Daddy ducks bill collectors while Mom fights depression.
Johnny can’t study, no lights for his lessons.
Susie needs doctors, she’s turned away at reception.
Oh, EDD, you’re the FEMA of our recession.
Twas weeks before christmas and for 111,000 Californians, it was far from alright.
