Why does America beat up on its poor?
Its hardworking hungry, its workday whores
And pitting the needy against the needier
The suit-wearing porcine faced men growing greedier
Whose miserly eyes get smaller and beadier and
Scorch up the earth like a Hollywood meteor
Why are they stealing the money from those
In the broken down cars and hand-me-down clothes
As they spit in their eye and step on their toes
Bled drier and drier and led by the nose
And how can a person bust their ass all week
And not even have a safe place to sleep
There’s a fervor that’s rising, we can’t stand it no more
America, why you got to beat up on your poor?
