THAT’S WHY THE MIDDLE CLASS HAS CRAMPS – 2015

Recent articles have prophesied the death of the middle class.  If not now on its deathbed, it is certainly suffering from a severe case of the cramps.  I’ve updated my post of November 10, 2011.

THAT’S WHY THE MIDDLE CLASS HAS CRAMPS – 2015
(To tune of “That’s Why the Lady is a Tramp,” by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart)

The rich own lobbies and lobbies buy votes.
Candidate’s whinny like horses for oats.
To get elected, and ride gravy boats.
That’s why the middle class has cramps.

“Money creates jobs,” those say who play god.
“Give us your blessings, we’ll spare you the rod.”
Bankers kill hopes with a nay not a nod.
That’s why the middle class has cramps.

About that dream, a house with no debt.
Brother forget.
You’re hosed.
Foreclosed!

Our constitution our high court revamps.
That’s why the middle class has cramps.

They told you work hard and you’d achieve.
Fools who’d believe.
No joke.
We’re broke!

No funds for college or kids’ summer camps.
That’s why the middle class has cramps
