’Tis the season for Big Money

-A A +A

By Bob Fuselier

Twas three months before Christmas
And all through the nation
Everyone was fearful
And manning their stations.
When Big Money decided
It’s that time of year
To take a break, a reprieve,
From our anger and fear.
Big Money’s no fool;
He’d grown strong and, yes, bold.
But his streets were in need
Of more layers of gold.
He deserved it, you see,
For he had worked hard this past year.
Installing the minions
With false pride and big fear.
It took hard work to buy
All those hearts and those minds.
They came from everyone,
You and me, all peoples, all kinds.
They came from the rich.
They came from the poor.
They came from the lady
Minding the store.
They came from the powerful.
They came from the weak.
The came from most everyone,
Save the humble and meek.
Big money is mighty
Like a fortress of steel.
But he hides well from the masses
The truth: he’s not real.
He knows he’s an illusion,
A facade we’ve all made.
Formed of our fear, our greed,
Of the lies that we’ve laid.
Big Money needs this season,
One of hope and true peace.
When he owns it he knows
