Let’s Hear It For The Gipper

An embarrassment lay before the trustees feet.

No courage, no diplomacy from the ivory seats.

~~

They bicker and fight at the masses expense,

Void of logic this makes absolutely no sense.

~~

Elected to do all the peoples good work,

To captain the ship with nary a perk.

~~

Not to be so, as their pockets belie,

They weakened the law and stole all the pie.

~~

Neither a sliver did they take nor merely a slice,

They keep going back many times more than twice.

~~

Still as cattle to the polls we can’t help but repeat,

As if we were held to the fire by our feet.

~~

When will the swarm awaken from their dream,

To see that this always has been part of the scheme.

~~

Divide up the nation into haves and have nots,

Feed those without means into the haves corporate plot.

~~

This countries demise may be its own wretched greed,

Blind or not caring for a citizenry in need.

~~

Many poor have been baited that less gives you more,

A theory disproved by many before.

~~

Even Greenspan did admit that “trickle down” was a farce,

The wealth it went up, but the trickle fell sparse.

~~

Thirty years on, on the brink of collapse,

Austerity it is as we watch prosperity lapse.

~~

But still the Gipper’s name is held up enshrined,

His legacy it ticks like a bomb out of time.
