From contributor Dee:


Three private planes
through panes of glass
automakers saw
the morass

the bed which they’d made
an incomprehensible fight
to tell the American people
they need to be made right

The management with triple
digit salaries, plus bonus
They hijacked our families
and already own us.

Now doomed to failure
they drive from Detroit
using the hybrids
they always fought

to fool the people
once again
That they can be trusted.
Oh, no not again.

The banks were too much, let it all end.
Lest Starbucks and drycleaners all try that trend.
