Main Street Blues

Appeared in the Press-Citizen on September 24, 2008

Why is it when I
get into debt
no one buys me out
(at least not yet),

and my doctor friend
(hear how she groans)
wouldn't get their sympathy
if she failed her loans,

but the second we hear
executives shout,
George Bush and the Feds
go bail them out

with billions and billions
of taxpayer loot
and the only thing golden
is their parachute?

This one made me smile today...even though it's no laughing matter.
