In the land of the brave and the free, and the eagle,
there exists a new breed of man,
who makes corruption and theft legal,
and they do it simply because they can!
They pay billions to the party politicians,
to allow them to operate sans regulation,
they have made it their sole mission,
to control the central power of the nation.
The president has given them the keys,
so they run the federal reserve,
and he's done this because he's,
wanting a second term so he can serve,
not the people whose votes put him in power,
but this new breed of snake oil sellers,
who, even though they should hide and cower,
still appear on tv where they tell us,
that they never did anything wrong,
that their type of stealing's ok,
and that if we all want the economy strong,
then the only way to have it is their way!
I have one question for the Great Democracy,
'why did your people, the brave and the free,
allow the unbridled growth of such a kleptocracy? '
It has blighted the lives of billions, and me!
