On Wall Street

          Talk about taking your country back.
    Young people are in their third week of operation “Occupy Wall Street.” They’re protesting the rich getting richer and the poor getting punk’d.
   The white collar criminals on Wall Street aren’t the only targets of the protesters —- the big corporation greed mongers are also a big part of the demonstrations.
   Not surprisingly, it took a while for cable news networks to start providing coverage of the protests. Not surprisingly because cable news networks are big corporations. Maybe that’s why they’re still asking what it is the protesters are protesting. They want to know their goal, so they can pigeon-hole them.
   Try social injustice —- a topic that people in positions of authority now believe died with the 1960s.
   “Oh, ya, social injustice. That was mentioned in a song from that hippie musical ‘Hair,’ wasn’t it?”
   It won’t be long, if it hasn’t happened yet, before Fox News fascists start discrediting the young people and start blaming the Marxist in the White House for igniting anti-American sentiment by making class warfare a major part of trying to sell his jobs bill, and his re-election campaign.
  The socialist president is now a Marxist, according to Fox News-controlled Republican lawmakers.
  One could imagine Princess Photo-0p Palin before she’s edited saying that Groucho was always her favorite Marxist.
  Some 700 protesters were arrested over the weekend. The protests are being joined in eight major cities this week, including Boston, Chicago and L.A. Of course in L.A., the protest site will need to be near a Starbucks, so the protesters can have easy access to their lattes.
  Imagine what the fat cat CEOs on Wall Street are saying as they look down on the protesters:
         *  “Hey, hippies —- get a job! Oh, that’s right, there are no jobs, losers!”
         * “If it’s class warfare they want, let’s institute a draft. Then you’ll see them scamper with their tails between their legs back to mommy and daddy like the little spoiled brats that they are.”
         * “You won’t see these little SOBs protest the big corporations that are making millions of dollars off of them buying their cell phones and iPads.”
  
     The anarchy needs a song. So sung to the tune made famous by the Drifters and later by George Benson, “On Broadway,” here’s “On Wall Street”:
     
 “The young are taking their country back
  On Wall Street.
  They say the stakes couldn’t be higher.
  We bailed you out when times were dire
  there’s no one among us you would hire
  it’s a crowded theater and we’re yelling ‘fire!’
  On Wall Street.

 

“They say presidential candidates are    bought and sold
On Wall Street.
Then they tell us taxing the rich is wrong.
 They say you won’t hold out for long.
 Keep going at least until Bruce writes a song.
The days of telling the Great Lie are long gone
On Wall Street.

                         

“The media wants to know what you want
On Wall Street.
But they’re so easily led astray.
They report what they want to say
like civil disobedience never pays
but there’s not enough pepper spray
On Wall Street.”
