Governments Can't Run Company's

Governments can't run companies
That statement still rings in my ears
Governments can't run companies
If that was your board of directors

If that was the man you paid 
to represent your company
if the CEO for your board of directors
came out and said we can't run company's

Then you'd give him the sack
you'd vote for another man
that could run the company 
creating profitable investments

Governments can't run companies
because they are to quick to sell them
and use the money to make themselves look good
Governments should be investing your money

Every day they use your money 
to pay for training organisations
Money that gets spent producing no profit
Money that could be used to make company's

The Teachers could become Managers
The Students could become Employees
The country's could be earning money 
Instead of just spending money

Creating products to sell overseas 
creates profit for your country
creating employment reduces 
spending for the country

Every week you pay tax
as investors we should be asking
how are you investing our money
to make this country better
