'The Senator and the Banker'
copyright 2012 by Richard Reiley
The Senator asked the Banker some really tough questions
Like how are your children? How was your day?
Then the Banker walked out with the billion dollars that he stole
While every one else looked the other way
He wasn't sworn under oath to tell the truth
They didn't want to challenge his dignity
Which he earned by legally cheating people
Who look a lot like you and me
They could tell by his clothes he was one of them
Untainted by original or any other kind of sin
The girl sellin' herself out in the alley
To buy diapers, dope and to pay her share of the rent
Sits in jail with others just like her
Who wonder where the good times went
Not a Senator among them
Not one Banker by her side
Which one causes more hurt and damage?
I don't know, I guess the courts will decide.
