Poem by Ellis Parker Butler
Would You Believe It?
One year ago I wished that I A banker great might be With a hundred million dollars And financial majesty; A mighty Wall Street banker With a whopping lot of power And an income of somewhere around A thousand plunks per hour; A solid Wall Street banker With securities in sacks And with clever men to show me How to pay no income tax; A wealthy Wall Street banker Who raked in cash like hay; I wished that just a year agoЧ And I wish the same today.
