This is my response to all the bailouts/handouts that we keep hearing about

Hark! The CEO’s Are Begging!
(To the tune of Hark the Herald Angels Sing)
by Laura Davis

Hark! The CEO’s are begging!
Filled with greed and selfish gain.
Wrong decisions caused their problems
Now the world will feel their pain.
Average Joe’s will have to suffer
‘Cause GM can’t fill its coffers.
Starving families will cry
In order that GM won’t die.
Forced to pay them all we have
All our savings they will grab.

Hark! The CEO’s are begging,
For some gas for their Lear jets.
Money is what they will squander
Cannot learn to stay out of debt.
Taxes they will go sky high
So large companies won’t die.
They want handouts right now
Or they’re gonna have a cow.
Hark the banks are crying red
Should have put my money in my bed.

Hark! The CEO’s are begging,
To save our economy
Well, I want a piece of the action
So I can feed my family,
I’m sick and tired of government spending
When will they stop overextending?
We are in a recession
On our way to depression
Hark I want some money too!
Share with me and I’ll share with you.
