With Hullabaloo22:

 

Shallow is as shallow does,

some are shallow as ever was.

 

Selfish greed Trump's compassion

I guess, selfish greed is the latest fashion.

 

Thought we'd moved beyond, but wrong-o-dear,

Still ruled by 'me', still ruled by fear,

 

fear that we'll somehow be denied what's ours,

our divine right will become well-below-par

 

because of 'them', whatever that means,

their piece of the American dream is looking mighty lean

 

Can’t fall below the next-door neighbors,

we need to show the fruits of labors;

 

brand new car, the latest sort,

excelling at the latest sport.

 

We know what matters, most important,

let those others stay there dormant;

 

bring back the power and the health,

reward those with the greatest wealth!

 

Keep out those that don’t have the right

to share in that great delight;

 

save it up and keep it pure

for if we don’t they'll be no cure.
