AUSTERITY!

Austerity - a political word!
That - gives governments!
Excuses - too squeeze!
Those - with out the means!
To - fight back - defend what little
They have!
Now back in 1945 - end of World War Two
The recovering world - need to - some how
Get back to wagering peace - after years
Of wagering war - in the extreme!
Yes - after - austerity - in order - after THAT WAR!

Now I naively - ask - has there been a war
That I had missed - in the news?

I recall The Bankers - pillaging - going on the rob!
Robing blind - all they could - hoodwink!
Coning the naive - those who trusted - banker advisers!
To borrow - then borrow some more and more!

Robber Barons!

Banks - coffers full - of the cash they stole!
Country's in a state of going broke!
They would have us believe!

Now some may say - they robed and robed!
Took and took - then came back and back!
Stole from the those they had impoverished!
Then on back they came stole from the poor!
The bankers had created!

Now we are all experiencing austerity - in the extreme!
Those who in no condition - not physically fit - minds broke!
To fight back - in anyway - paying for The Bankers - of course!
Of this state of - austerity - now we are in - continue
To - pay and pay! - thus it is so!
