Hymn To The American Middle Class

I went to the movies
and now I'm in debt.
I went to the restaurant
and now I'm in debt.
I went on vacation
and so I'm in debt.
I went to college.
I'm deep in debt.
I got a job.
I'm still in debt.
I got married
and now we're in debt.
I had a kid.
We're drowning in debt.
I have three credit cards. One of them
is Gold Premium Deluxe, it's a status symbol
and I'm deeper in debt.
I bought health insurance---a very good policy.
I'm so in debt.
I went to the hospital
and now I'm bankrupt.
I got screwed by the One Percent.
The One Percent, bolstered by the Bush/Clinton/Obama regime,
own 90% of everything.
I'm just a work-slave
in debt.
