We'd Settle For Sixpence

Sing a song of deficits,
Pockets full of IOUs;
Four and twenty tax cuts
We knew it was a ruse.
When the pie was divided,
The rich began to sing.
There wasn't any left for us
We got hardly anything.

Uncle Sam handing out your money to the rich

George was in his White House,
Counting out his money;
Corporate Cronies in the parlor
Eating bread and honey.
The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out their clothes.
She was just a black bird
And that is how it goes!


New faces in the Whitehouse,
But we haven't seen much change.
New rhetoric is most evident,
As the shells are rearranged.
Republicans or Democrats,
It doesn't seem to matter.
The poor they go on suffering,
While the rich just get fatter.

William's Whimsical Words:

Some of us knew this before Katrina and the Wall Street bailouts; now we all know it.
