Takers and Givers~by rldubour


Let’s split the people up in groups, one that gives and one that takes.

The group that gives, stand in front, the others sit in place.

Any politicians here? You may leave without disgrace.

We all know that you are takers, no need to see your other face.

It’s time we look at all the greed, some groups hold inside.

Just how much money does one need, to be satisfied?

The rich get richer, the poor stay poor, you heard this many times.

All we do is shake our heads and act as if we’re blind.

The politicians line their pockets and then they look away.

As the oil prices rise and the people have no say.

I think about why this is done, there is no shortage at this time.

They jack the prices up so high, come down a little we won’t mind.

What happened to Alaska, with the pipeline in Valdez?

We are selling all this oil to China and the Japanese!

Plus all of our refineries are full to capacity.

So please explain the gouge in prices, so it does not sound like greed.

It’s not just the oil that is out of whack; it’s your benefits when you leave!

Why do you need all that money? Can this all be greed?


Let’s leave the politicians alone and look at all the C.E.O’s.

With their enormous salaries, so deserving heaven knows.

What exactly do they do to qualify for this?

When we have people with no food, yet that yacht they can’t resist.

And what about these pharmaceuticals, what are they thinking of?

With five hundred percent mark up on our medical drugs!

Our elders they eat cat food, you people caviar.

How can this greed be so unjust and reaching out so far?

The rich get rich, the poor stay poor, you heard this many times.

All we do is shake our heads and act as if we’re blind.

Lets’ talk about our doctors and those insurance companies.

The money that they take in can only mean its greed.

A lot of Americans have this choice, either hunger of their health.

While all these big insurance companies keep bringing in their wealth.

How do we stop this trend we have, with people and their greed?

To put money more important, than the peoples needs!


As long as I am on the roll, I must bring up this I see.

The franchise owners of our sports, they all have their share of greed.

It does not matter what the sport, the prices are out of sight.

The average family can not go, simply can not afford the price.

The salaries all these players get, how much is enough?

They have to feed their family too, gee, it must be rough.

My point to all you people, if you should pick this up and read.

Maybe you should take a look, why there is so much greed!


Now, let’s look at the other half, they are standing there out front.

They are the givers of this world, we have no better bunch.

The mothers and the fathers, providing family needs.

To the military men and women, making sure that we stay free.

The paramedics, police and firemen always there in need.

Not one of them I mentioned, fill their hearts with greed!

To all our unsung heroes, who work hard every day.

To all our older people who made our world today.

To the nurses and the teachers who care in every way.

Money is not everything as some would like to say.

  51. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
