NAUGHTY BAILOUT BONUS SUCK A THUMB
THE STORY OF A NAUGHTY BAILOUT BONUS SUCK A THUMB
(Struwwelpeter, Little Suck A Thumb)
WilliamBanzai7's Subprime Struwwelpeter
One day Obama said "Conrad dear,
I must go out and leave you here.
But mind now, Conrad, what I say,
Don't suck your bailout bonus thumbs while I'm away.
The great taxing tailor Uncle Sam always comes
To bailout boys who suck their bonus thumbs;
And ere they dream what he's about,
He takes his great taxing scissors out,
And cuts their bonus thumbs clean off--and then,
You know, they never grow again."
Obama had scarcely turned his back,
The thumb was in, Alack! Alack!
The door flew open, in he ran,
The great, long, red-legged scissor bearing Uncle Sam.
Oh! you bailout deadbeats, see! Uncle Sam the taxing tailor's come
And caught out little Bailout Bonus Suck a Thumb.
Snip! Snap! Snip! the bailout bonus taxing scissors go;
And Conrad cries out "Oh! Oh! Oh!"
Snip! Snap! Snip! They go so fast,
That both his bonus thumbs are off at last.
Obama comes home: there Conrad stands,
And looks quite sad, and shows his hands;
"Ah!" said Obama, "I said he'd come
To naughty little Bailout Bonus Suck A Thumb."
