But had to cut through the jargon
And found that the global recession
Was his own personal transgression

He spent more than he had
With a check that was bad...
Now he lives a guest of the state
With his new cell mate, named Brutal.

He'd bought it all once before
So he took himself out of the store
Stopped at the bank, saved his money
And went home without a gift for Honey.

His mind became obsessed
and overly distressed
He knew his rate of borrowing
Had helped the worldwide sorrowing
Now everyone's depressed.

Mojo said...

He caught a good earful over the mess
From most of his friends and all of the press
So he straightened his tie and tried to look regal
And quoth, "When the president does it, it's not illegal!"

(Yes, we can still get a little mileage out of Dubyaisms. For a while anyway.)
