LET'S HOPE
PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY

The wealth
to trickle down
as Ronnie promised
got dammed up
in deregulation
platitudes of “free”
and greed
an untenable situation
that finally burst

A Wall Street disaster
as floods of worthless paper
drown the middle class
drench the poor
while the wealthy
with their multi-million
dollar bonuses
dressed in golden parachutes
beg for a bailout.
