“How long America, before the consequences of:
Keeping the schools segregated,
Allowing the press to be intimidated,
Watching the price of everything soar,
And hearing complaints because the rich want more?
It seems that MacBeth, and not his lady, went mad.
We’ve let ‘em eliminate the whole middle class.
The dollar’s the only thing we can’t inflate,
While the poor go on without a minimum wage.”
