Capitalism Equals Cancer

by | Apr 7, 2021 | Political

I would not throw Capitalism out, but it needs to be harnessed. We can see
through pharmaceutical exemption in relation to vaccinations, there are
lobbyists who have many of Congress in their pocket. The 800 billion
dollar bail-out of the banks disgusted most of us. That’s what’s being
addressed here.

Capitalism is a cancer
Looking for a host
Taxpayers falling victim
A target for the most

Lenders creating public loans
And seduced with double talk
Variable rates drove people out
With loss they took a walk

Banks re-acquired lost property
Homeowners lost investment
Now we’re called to bail banks out
What’s fair in this assessment

A Force the public represents
With power long forfeited
Politicians yield to lobbyists
While public wants omitted

Capitalists created the problem
Greed their only fuel
Stand up to be counted
The telephone is the tool.


[This was a popular issue when Obama took office. He gave the banks a 800
billion dollar bailout.]
