Speaking of ellipses…

Please allow this tangential allegory:
I’ve been walking for fifteen weeks
There’s no feeling in my feet
And still I can’t complain
This from a guy who trademarked frowns
And charged those who wore one a royalty
Unemployment and this recession
Made me rich from others’ misfortune
Sadness taxation! Who would’ve thunk it?
Neither a conspiratorial legislator,
Nor a conniving mastermind
Instead, just some guy from the midwest
With a calloused sole
