pomes of buddy don: No Time to Use Common Sense

No Time to Use Common Sense

The bankers who ruined the economy,
Who profited under the lax oversight
Of dogmatic zealots who chose not to see
The very abuses they’re charged to set right

Have now sent their lackeys to Capitol Hill
To beg for a bailout with no strings attached,
That, should it be granted, like a poison pill,
Will stop all spending plans from being hatched

And put further tax cuts on permanent hold
(Since sooner or later our bill must be paid),
All of which means that we will have sold
Our grandchildren’s dreams before they are made.

The need is urgent, the danger immense,
So this is no time to use common sense!
