  1. Bailing Railing

    Why is it, those with all the money
    Are, in the front of the first line
    With their hand out for a bailout
    From us poor Folks, all the time?

    It’s not just car makers and brokers
    Most all big companies are the same
    When things don’t go how they want
    It’s, We, the People, get the blame.

    They fly all around in private jets
    Stocked with fine wines and caviar
    Ride limos to and from the airport
    While we can’t buy gas for our car.

    Most of them pay little in taxes
    Through, their loopholes and breaks
    Paying less, the more they earn
    While we can’t make, what it takes.

    They will send our jobs overseas
    They don’t want to pay the cost
    To have it, “Made in the USA”
    Maybe, pride of that, forever lost.

    They import goods with lead paint
    And poisoned foods to make us sick
    They don’t care if some of us die
    To get our money, (they’re that slick).

    They break our laws all the time
    And don’t fear, if they are caught
    A slap on the wrist, rarely, “time”
    While, we can go to jail, for naught.

    Millions are paid to so-called bosses
    To bring any company’s, ruination
    While stockholders, hire those CEOs
    They want to blame it on the Nation.

    With perks and golden parachutes
    And bonuses, far beyond absurd
    Defended by the dumbest reasons
    That, anyone has ever heard.

    We all really need a wake-up call
    And all of us will pay the price
    Maybe, for all the lessons learned
    We won’t let this happen, twice.

    Maybe we should, let them go bankrupt
    And let the chips fall, where they may
    With the hope, borne from those ashes
    The common Folks, might have, their day.

    Del “Abe” Jones
