According to Joe
Rewarding them for failure
Many corporations are in the tank
For which we have their bosses to thank.
They don't give a hoot
And get their loot
From corporate coffers, their piggy bank.
Handpicked committees rule the day.
Corporate stockholders have no say.
It's clear to see
Of this vulgar corporate display.
