Carla Ulbrich The Harvest Box Is Coming 
The proposed Federal Budget for 2018 includes a plan to replace most food stamp benefits (or "SNAP," a.k.a "Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program"). SNAP is currently given in the form of debit cards, about $90-200 a month per family. The proposal is to replace the debit cards (which can only be spent on food) with delivered boxes of canned food.

Sounds fine as long as no one ever steals packages off your porch, you don't have food allergies, you can eat all the salt you want, you don't care for fresh fruits and vegetables, or actual milk or eggs, and you're good with feeding your family powdered milk and spam. Oh, and the after cost of shipping, the program doesn't actually save the government any money. Other than that, it's great.

lyrics: Carla Ulbrich
vocal, vocal, and vocal: Carla Ulbrich
percussion, arrangement, etc.: Carla Ulbrich
music: parody of "Christmas Is Coming" (traditional Christmas carol). This melody is taken from "Country Gardens," an English dance tune (there are other versions of this carol using different melodies). I believe the description of this ditty is now longer than the set of lyrics.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Love this! You crazy hat-eater, you! (Gluten-free hats are getting slightly easier to find...)

I hope that I never have to experience this personally.

I also hope you never experience needing food stamps and instead getting a box of food you can't eat/ don't want. Mostly I hope you never have to eat a hat. Most hats aren't as tasty as they look.
