Swans Commentary » swans.com March 14, 2005  







Say quid;


You say quo.


You say private; I say personal:
I say crisis;  you say insolvency.


I say compassion; you say lustful greed:
You say commitment; I say insurance policy.


I say homeland security; you say fascist fatherland:
You say socialist democracy; I say capitalistic republic.


You say another pyramid scheme; I say a rags-to-riches story:
I say freedom and liberty for all; you say a torturous policy for some.


. . . . .
