fat cats

I see the fact cats getting fatter I see the poor folk getting weak I’m told that somewhere in the bible We’re told to turn the other cheek I see the rich man on a drug charge He’s going get a second chance jail a poor man who stole to feed his child ,judge say’s we got to take a stance I see the politician on the Tv Saying he’s going to make it right But once he’s got the vote he’s sitting on his boat Sipping champagne thru the night. I see the preacher all high & mighty Saying we got to help the poor But then you see his home Is like the pleasure dome It’s got me wondering for sure I see wars in other countries They just don’t seem to make no sense The politicians lie, as the innocent die And survivors live in tents I see the greed of the few Out weighs the need s of the many Because most of those with all the gold Wouldn’t part with even pennies Why don’t we do something about this Why don’t we get up on the floor Why don’t we do something about it Lets show these people to the door
