I’ve always thought this was a great song. One lyric came to me again today in the midst of the fall of Warren and the rise of Bernie:
“Tax the rich/feed the poor/Till there are no/rich no more?”
I’ve got no problem with taxing the rich or feeding the poor. I always thought the goal ought to be no poor no more. Maybe it doesn’t flow as well in the world of songwriting. But, I wonder if that’s the difference between Warren and Sanders supporters. Warren supporters focus on eliminating poverty, while Sanders supporters want to get rid of the rich?
Just a thought.
