Someone Needs to Throw a Punch
Modern ghost towns now are cities,
Thousands of houses falling down…
Once homes of the rising middle class
Now in abandoned factory towns.
The depression baffles congressmen
This growth of poverty, shore to shore…
Is simply the fact the union men
Have no income to share anymore.
They don’t pay for clarinet lessons,
Can’t afford a brand new car…
Even the farmers are not supported,
Food stamp allotments don’t go far.
The corporate government’s solution,
Is to freeze the minimum wage…
Tricking the young to be soldiers,
Securing the locks on the worker’s cage.
