so long, and thanks for all the fish, er, clams

The Causes of The Great Depression / FDR Memor...

I fear many more hard years
of high unemployment and increased inflation
and I guess my son won’t find full-time employment
or a decent paying job, anytime soon
the oceans may or may not rise
but all our energy costs certainly will
and who will mourn for our coal industry
now heading for total ruin?

at least four more years
of over trillion dollar deficits
will likely put this country
about 22 trillion clams in the hole
wisely we will invest other people’s money
with hundreds of billion dollars in crony capitalism
so that all the bankrupt clean green companies
we the people, will soon own and control

but I am not in a great depression
by our desired direction towards self-destruction
for I am a scientist and will document and study
our folly and fall with the utmost federal reserve
and perhaps finally we will have the answer
to the political question of the ages
do we the people really get
the government that we deserve?

      Thanks, I’ve always found Douglas Adam’s “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” terribly funny. At times, I also fear my poetry may be right up there with the mindless bureaucratic Vogons, so I never read it aloud. πŸ™‚
