Our bankrupt bankers


POSTED: Sunday, February 22, 2009

The bankers are a powerful lot

Who manage to call every shot.

One thing that we need to see

Is the end of their financial oligarchy.

Treasury wants to set some rules

But the CEOs have the tools.

For every rule that we invent

Their crafty lawyers will circumvent.

Let's stop giving deference

To the CEOs' incompetence.

Their greed we can take no more

So let's kick their asses out the door.

In voting for you, was I nuts?

President Obama, show some guts.

If you can't figure it out, then here's the scoop

The fox will be guarding the chicken coop
