Take It From You

What are the politicians fighting for?
Another bunch of shareholders begging for more
Trying to buy another stock or two
Pretending it will filter down to you
Men of means versus men in jeans
Pitiful people lining their pockets with green
Greedy ass bastards living beyond their needs
Squeezing turnips trying to make them bleed
The regular guy works to keep a roof overhead
His wife works too, to keep the family fed
If you manage to save a dollar or two
Take it from me, they're going to take it from you
Take it from me, they're going to take it from you
I've got no problem with people living well
I'd love to be one of them if the truth I'd tell
But not going to get there breaking someone else's back
Got news for you, it ain't worth that
Rich people don't know what it's like
To live paycheck to paycheck, it's like plugging a dike
They got no concept of being poor
And they don't plan on finding out, that's for sure

Author's Note
Actually wrote this after they decided to give billions to big business. I've never been a fan of trickle down economies. If you give to the poor, the rich people will make their businesses bigger to get it. If you give to the rich they'll pocket it and buy back stock.
