pomes of buddy don: Greed

But Greed Was Good!

But greed was good back when the Keating Five
Were being helped out of their major jam
By promises that help would soon arrive
In part from grandchildren of Uncle Sam.

And greed was good to help deregulate
The markets
so the inside crowd could play
In confidence that crumbs from their full plate
Would trickle down to workers one fine day.

And greed was good to insulate the gains
From taxes on investment
, not on work,
Since capital cannot abide the chains
That labor has no legal way to shirk.

Greed! Privatizes profits for the few
And socializes risk to me and you.
