BAIL-OUT

Standard

insiders

trading

greedy

riding-high

living-fine

no pains

until

greasy-palms

steer

ship-lollipop

into

Titanic-waters

outsiders

scratching

dry-land

praying

for just

one slice

of

American-pie

no apples

empty-barns

empty-houses

unanswered

prayers

no rescue

while

babies cry

mothers sigh

daddies die

now

hope floats

on

salt-watered

kegs of

stale beer

washed

away upon

dichotomies

insiders

bleed

save-us-blood

outsiders

bleed

save-us-blood

only one

government-god

only one

bail-out
