Freddie and Fannie, YouTube

Hey Freddie and Fannie
I am not your nanny,
yet I gave you the big pill
made of 800 bil.

Tell your buddies on Wall Street
whose mothers they would cheat,
that we’re throwin’ the law book
at each scumbag crook.

We’ll seize all the brute’s vile loot
and each golden parachute,
when they jump from the rooftop
we’ll hear a kerplop.

Then we’ll open the champaign
and sadness we won’t feign,
we’ll fashion their carpet bags
into closing bell flags.

    This is a great political statement on Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and squandered taxpayer dollars, James. Unfortunately, I can't play youtube from my laptop, but I can see how this would make a terrific song. Good luck in Tavarus's contest! Love, Carolyn
