Crappy Days Are Here To Stay!

To the tune of "Happy Days Are Here Again." Crappy days are here to stay Obama will not go away  And now there will be hell to pay  Crappy days are here again    All he knows is tax and spend He’s spent the gold at rainbow’s end  And now he’ll come for yours my friend  Crappy days are here again Altogether shout it now  There’s no one who can doubt it now We’ve sold our soul to China now  Crappy days are here again Socialism’s on the rise  Though built upon a pack of lies  It’s Communism in disguise Crappy days are here again  Millions out there unemployed  Remembering jobs they once enjoyed  For now food stamps must fill the void  Crappy days are here again  Foreclosure took their happy home On to the street they have been thrown  With out a nickel of their own  Crappy days are here again. Cares and troubles here to stay  And they’ll grow from day to day But be of cheer the “rich” will pay  Crappy days are here again.  Crappy days are here to stay Obama will not go away  And now there will be hell to pay  Crappy days are here again

Howard, You have penned a good poem and while I don't agree with everything you wrote that doesn't interfer with my appreciation of this piece. Writing it to the tune of 'Happy days are here again' is very creative. I had no trouble singing the lines to that tune. Each line is well composed and quite compelling. Good alliteration in happy/home, a fluid flow, a effective rhyme and the theme makes this piece fun to read. Well done. Best wishes, cheyenne

Howard, I found this totally charming, delightfully witty and a most fun read. Your sentiments put a smile on my face. I definitely like your brand of satire. Best always, Lora.

Ok Very clever to rewrite an old tune with currrent events. Your wording is orginal esp the rainsbows end stanta. I can remember days of better work for better pay. Now it seems every job pays minimum wage, part time and no benifits. I just waiting for the day that the powers that be say "Let em eat cake" Thanks for a clever work :)
