Our Recession... Is Our Depression

We were proud, we were strong...
Then they came blundering along with their unregulated financial greed... we could only plead.
Life must be just a haze when seen from so far above... I guess they thought we could never lose.


It is such a shame as it all went down in flames, the homes we will never know or own...
I guess I have not much to show for all those years of work... I now feel such a jerk.
as the worlds finances turned to ash... how did they manage to abdicate their golden thrones yet stuff Picassos and cash in suitcases headed for their offshore homes.


What can I do but try not to give up when I am forced to not live on much...
So few jobs, yet so many applicants...  I know I am a capable choice but alas I don't appear to have a voice.
We were proud, we were strong... but I guess that is yesterday’s song.
