Team Poetry Project

As you've no doubt noted, the one thing the W.C. Varones Blog lacks is a theme song. I started writing one, but then I thought it would be more fun to open it up and make it a group project, especially because we have a couple professional poets (John Enright and tb) in the readership, as well as several talented amateurs.

The goal is to get a song/poem that captures the spirit of the blog from political outrage to economic outlook to juvenile humor. I think the song "My Favorite Things" offers a fun and easy format.

Here's a start (UPDATED with verses by Corporate Drone, Keith, and Anonymous). Please post your verses in the comments and I will compile them.
My Favorite Things

Triple-A tranches and Screech Dirty Sanchez
Naked Mozilos and Coogee Gelatos
African witch doctors' penis theft rings
These are a few of my favorite things

GM and Chrysler and Ford all in trouble
People homeless from the real estate bubble
CEOs violated by cellmates' big dings
These are a few of my favorite things

VPilfs and X-rays of dildoes in cases,
Leveraged homeowners losing their places,
Drunken Joe Biden of Villages sings,
These are a few of my favourite things.

When windows break, investors jump
When it hits the fan
I simply remember how it used to be
Spank you very much Greenspan

Fannie and Freddie and Barney and Chris Dodd,
Fed'ral receivership gobbles up wall street,
Socialist tendencies pushed from up high,
Vandal invasions, your time is well neigh!

With this bailout,
And inflation,
I just need to cry.
To liquidate assets I'll set what I have.
My favorite things, goodbye.
