Legal Crims - Poem by Francis Duggan
These faceless and heartless billionaires the greatest crims of all
How many on account of them have gone to the financial wall
They always come out winning and a massive profit make
And they keep on raising interests and they take and take and take.
Last year the young man became redundant due to no fault of his own
And when he got behind on his mortgage payments little mercy to him shown
By the banker who gave him credit his home he was forced to
How many others like him have similar stories to tell? .
He and his wife and their little boy in a single bedroom rented flat
And whilst he has grown much poorer his ex creditors have grown rich and fat
On the misfortunes of others like him who too have fallen by the way
Whilst the legal crims grow wealthier and more powerful by the day.
They are legal financial traders yet the greatest crims of all
And because of them so many have gone to the financial wall
And to those who owe them money they show little sympathy
And they are to blame in some ways for the rise in poverty.
