The Poetry Bus is on the Rampage!
The fabulous Watercats are driving the bus this week! Not only are they fabulous musicians, they have given us a fabulous prompt - and frankly I can't wait to see what they do with it. Here are the details:
2: IN A FOUR LINE POEM
3: WITH A RHYME THAT HAS A RHYTHM SUCH AS THUS;
dum dum dunm dum dum dee dum
dum de dum de dum dee dum
dum de dum de dum dee dee
dum de dum de dum de dee.
My part of the process there-after is to turn (try to turn) alll.. (or as many as possible) of ye're verses in to PROTEST song... (this may or may not happen as quickly as I would hope).
So, here's my effort - as suggested by my father, this is a rant about the bail-out of the banking industry here in the US & the bonuses that some of the executives received as a result. It's actually kind of hard to do a four line rant - but here is mine:
There’s thieves and robbers in the land
Slick suits take money from my hand
“The bank can’t die it just can’t die”
Well, yes it can don’t buy that lie!
Now, make your way over to the Watercats site to check out the other rants!
