Here are two poems that capture the situation in America and Detroit. I have the research.The War Is HereByMichael La Crone11-27-2014Battles over there, nothing to fear;Iraq a sideshow, the war is here.1929, all over again;stock market fraud, now as then!Free stock, for Insider bosses;2008, 401k losses!Bonus gifts, by the millions;retirements ruined, by the $trillionsCorrupt finance, bankers lied;war on workers, justice denied!Fraud the weapon, bankers deployed;public deceived, lives destroyed!Bankrupt Detroit, transfer of wealth; perfect storm, parasitic stealth!Wages earned, shovels digging;savings lost, financial rigging! Government captured, growing the costs!How to stop, the mounting loss?Insider claims, investors no voice;zero-sum games, rights without choice! Betrayed trust, workers’ debt;never forgive, never forget!Congress feeding, on insider loot;Bankers’ finance, fraud at the root! THE SELF-DEALING INSIDERByMichael R. La Crone (May 2006)Man buys to build, upon his land;Soon finds his castle, sunk in sand!Investor too; stocks, she planned;Takes her loss, at the broker’s hand!Contrived deception, purpose subverted;Empty promises, carefully worded!Financial ruin, investments a waste;Equity stolen; pensions debased!Foul is the deed, what is the aim?Self-dealing greed! A zero-sum game!Parasite on labor, insider by name;Predators’ sport; the victim to blame!Politician the servant, regulation, and rule;Duplicitous dealer, the insider’s tool!What’s to be done? A critical flaw;Ownership rights? The rule of law?Illusory claims; a ballot, no sense;An equity bullet, the last defense!Justice awry, that allows such a cost;Justice restored, that returns all was lost!
