Back of the Bus

by

Election 2010 fast approaches
And the Great Recession grinds on.
Opportunities every day are lost
And more jobs are forever gone.

But great news from Wall Street for our ear
The Media Puppets make sure we hear.
Rich men are getting richer
And for this we should all loudly cheer.

Americans don’t begrudge, Obama says
Those who attain great wealth
Well, goddamn it, we do
When it’s stolen from us with deceit and stealth.
So what is this “change” he promised us?
It’s this:
Every American now knows
Everyone now sits in the back of the bus.
