Parson Mac’s Muse: The Land of Bilkin’ Money

Evidently, the "Promises Land" of politically correct financing wasn’t the Promised Land after all. (A Poem)

Evidently, the “Promises Land” of politically correct financing wasn’t the Promised Land after all.  

‘Tis blame enough to spread around
Both sides, the Congress aisle
But Domino One of this money mess
Was drawn from the Donkey’s pile
And though root cause is clearly known
(Just check Wikipedia! )
There’ll be no “looking into this”
From our lame and scheming media. 

Nor can we look to Congress
For kicking butt and taking names
‘Cause far too many of their own
Would go down in electoral flames
And so this week they’re grilling
All those Wall Street CEO’s
And trying not to tread upon
Their own congressional toes. 

Valid questions years ago
When this Raines guy served his stint
Were well and truly stonewalled while
Franklin made a mint
And then that interred CEO
Who, in 2005
Addressed the vaunted C.B.C.
To keep housing hope alive. 

Who was that guy, uh… Daniel?
That’s right, his name was Mudd!
Shmoozed Mr. & Ms. Obama
Said the C.B.C. was ‘blood’.
Well ain’t that sweet?!? They’re family!
(Though a family in cahoots!)
A family of Dem foxes guarding
Dem mortgage hen-house coops.

And at hearings in 2004
We had a clear analysis
That Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
Were headed for paralysis
But the righteously indignant
Such as Marxine Waters, spoke,
“Why insist on fixing Fannie Mae
When she’s not even broke?!?

Why, Marxine was proud and beaming
That Fannie Mae had sold
More houses to the unqualified
Than Fort Knox has bricks of gold
And other Dems? Well… they demagogued
Like the p.o.’d Gregory’s chant
“I can’t believe you called us here!!!”
Was his peevish rant. 

Poor Mr. Lacy, (whose mind of Clay)
Said, “the markets were UNconcerned”
What’s he think about that now
We’ve been so badly burned?
What we need are heads on platters
Of those who broke the bank!
Instead… we’ve history rewrites from…
… from hacks like Blarney Frank. 

And as recently as July this year
That epitome of bad judgmentals
Charles E. Shroomer vouchsafed for
Fannie’s “solid fundamentals”
‘Tis blame enough to spread around
Both sides, the Congress aisle
But Domino One of this money mess
Was drawn from the Donkey’s ‘pile’
