Pawns on your table

Updated on October 31, 2011

j. Brady Pawns On Your Table. This is for you my friend

Shame on your hollow high street houses
all ye banks that rob with keyboard and pen.
You that steal the precious wealth of our nation,
... every corrupt politician is surely your best friend.

You thought our pensions were pawns on your table,
a lifetimes work at the mercy of your shallow whim.
while you wined and dined on our future
and worked off your excess in your gym.

You gambled on our childrens only future
for they must mend all you plunder and break.
show me the bank that thinks about giving
and i'll show you how they rob and they take.

You have no cosept of life thats worth living
except meaningless pictures that hang on your wall.
But your kingdom of gold it now crumbles,
soon your illusions of grandure may fall.

So pray for the hope in the minds of our children,
who'll work hard to win back the fortunes you've lost.
they'll dream of an honest and fair dealing tomorrow
and someday forget what really was the cost.

      I know it's trendy to blame banks for everything...

      ... but the banks didn't steal money from you income. The government did.

      Blame your elected officials, and then vote for Ron Paul

      The banks got money from the bailouts.

      The bailouts came from Government.

      The government gets the money from taxes.

      If you don't pay your taxes, you go to jail at the point of a gun.

      You don't voluntarily choose to pay taxes.

      Follow the money: Taxes are theft, and the banksters got it. Government stole your money and gave it to the banks.

      Ron Paul is the only presidential candidate on stage who voted against the bailouts. Every single one.

      Logic.

      E.G.R. you must work in a bank to think like this , the bank are the greatest robbers ever, Pushing vast amounts of money for over inflated property that was sure to fall, and the bank still pay out their big bonus to management, please wake up to what is happening all around you before it's too late. P.J.

      This is amazing!

      I point out that Ron Paul is against the bailouts, then you say he's in bed with the rich?!

      I argue against bailing out banks, and you claim that I'm a banker!!!

      Is this Bizarro Land? You guys aren't just making NO sense, you're using NEGATIVE sense!!

      I can only say, "AMEN!"

      You go girl--banks and government--it is the people we put in office who are behind it all. We the people are mad and they should pay attention.

      Thanks for making this hub.
