NEED A LOAN?. . . (DON'T BE AN AMERICAN!)
Have you ever asked your bankers for a badly needed loan?
To make sure they get their dough they'll make you sweat and groan.
But, if you are a foreign state like China or Brazil
They'll shovel out the billions. (If they won't pay, WE will).
OUR OILY POLITICIANS . . . (Words, words, empty words!)
Those oily politicians. . . I despise their greedy guts!
To save our sinking country they won't get off their butts.
"Scratch my back and I'll scratch yours". .. their game of give and take
America is in TROUBLE - - campaign promises a fake!
LET'S TRY PRACTICING WHAT WE PREACH . .
Churches, synagogues and mosques all preach "fraternity
So, how come, in this "preachy" world there's such hostility?
People listen with their ears and seldom with their hearts
Spread love and peace around you - hope others do their parts.
POOR WELFARE - AND RICH WELFARE
Welfare for the poor's not only in New York
Corporations get it, too - - but they just call it "pork".
Corporate greed and private greed - a curse upon our land
Congress is responsible. . . When will they take a stand?
THE YOUNG SACRIFICE - - - THE OLD GET RICH. . .
My eldest son went off to war; the rest of us stayed here
Making money, having fun; no danger did we fear.
"ALL at war or ALL a peace" - - our selfish needs denying
No one, safe at home, should gain while boys are out there dying.
