The 1 Percent Solution

This country's wealth is owed to loans
A debit the public now owns 
We're told there’s no cost
But old lifestyles are lost
Over war and pork barrel bones

The public’s frail pockets they pick
Politicians and banksters trick    
And prime the nation  
With graft and inflation 
Thus making the middle class sick

    makes some of the middle classers sick enough to say screw it... and learn to grow their own food and sew their own clothes and build their own homes so giggles and tears don't get stolen, too.
