I JUST HAD TO SAY IT!
GREED RULES

Used to be
greedy wasn’t good
Now it’s prevailing wisdom that
the wealthy elite should keep their money
they earned it
they deserve their tax cuts, tax cuts, tax cuts
In fact: “The rich have accountants”*
No investment need be made
by them into America’s infrastructure
into roads, into police and firefighters
into research, into education
into health care
They invest
only in themselves
Our president applauds
wants tax cuts to the wealthiest 1%
permanent
after all
“Real rich people figure out how to dodge taxes”*
I guess he knows

Oh, greed is on the ballot this November
Some think there are loopholes in heaven
just for them
