We'd Settle For Sixpence
Sing a song of deficits,
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.
