The New Tyrants

And so there are the new tyrants
-	And who are the distinguished?
The moguls who benefited from TARP
-	The cries for help can not be extinguished

Who hoarded monies and increased their penalties
-	Further, insulting the American public
Lopping on still more late interest penalties
-	We once were an admired republic

Now, are children are but homeless
-	Who can bear to hear them weep?
The price that’s been paid is senseless
-	Many knew the problems ran deep

Denial became a common theme
-	And so is gone the American Dream
