Title: Thanks For Nothing

No thanks to all the bankers
who have triggered this recession.
No thanks go to the governments
as we sink into depression.

No thanks for selling gold reserves
belonging to our nation;
no thanks to many industries
for foreign relocation.

No thanks for all the cut backs
causing massive unemployment,
No means to earn a living wage,
no chance of redeployment,

No thanks for great disruption
in our childrens` education,
No answers to our students`
dismal credit situations.

No thanks for fewer numbers
of policemen on the beat
Resulting in less safety and
more crime on every street.

No thanks from the disabled
in their hardship and despair
No thanks from senior citizens
or those in need of care.

No thanks as losses still persist
in wars we can`t afford
which questions if stability
will ever be restored.
