The arguments revisited, clean, and polished; media comes to watch, dismiss and abolish.
Connected to the corporate cast, they look down on the working class.
So chained the advertisement dollar, they refuse to admit to any future squalor.
They insist the American dream is fine, sanctioned, upheld and divine.
And this is how the report Wall Street News, rosy stories, and reviews.
Europe in crisis, Greece distressed, the upstanding Socialist state, crumbling due to Capitalist fate.
They bought Wall Street’s Dirty Lies, bought the fraud, bought the carney barker’s cries.
“Come one, come all, step right up, make a trillion, don’t be a chump.”
“Come on here, do it now, pull that trigger, take the vow, the money changers will show you how.”
“Take that first step on the path to magical wealth; make the journey towards financial health.”
Within each promising bundle of commercial paper, hid a filthy fraud, a marketing caper.
So long as most of the bundled notes were fine, the unserviceable debt sold as vintage wine.
“Put your name on the dotted line. Come on; trust us, in riches you will recline”
That is the story they continue to tell, that is the fable they continue to sell.
This is America all is well! No fraud, we promise, come fall under the golden spell.
Yet, on main street homes are lost. People into the gutter are tossed. No one noticed the hidden cost.
Bankers gamble with other’s money. Taking risk upon risk, they sucked up the worker’s honey.
For that is how they saw the masses, drones, surfs, dumb, stupid, assorted asses.
They still hold the real property, to sell again in a swirl of financial anarchy.
And laugh they do on all hollows’ eve, tricks played, treats withheld, as many more get the heave.
