Achieving satisfaction through lowered expectations

The economy continues to stagnate and unemployment remains high — which is just fine with Barack Obama, who believes that most people don’t expect much anyway and will be content with a pittance — as long as the government provides them with free birth control, of course. The Bard of Murdock expresses his humble gratitude to the Food Stamp President:

I’d like to thank the President
For help in steering clear
Of those who are the one percent
And have a good career.

His economic policies
Have led to my release
From economic liberty
I knew with Credit Suisse.

I rode the roller coaster down
With unemployment checks,
Until I joined the salaried staff
That ran the megaplex.

But even that was not immune
From his economy,
Which powers almost all its growth
Through fiscal policy.

So now I search the classifieds
And air my discontent
With vagabonds from #Occupy
Who curse the one percent.
