Don’t Flush Us Uncle Sam
By Daniel Minteer
We’re still in the red
And feeling quite blue
Our money’s still leaving
With our sanity too
Come on Uncle Sam
Let’s get out of debt
The bankers won’t thank us
But our children will I bet
Then hope’s on the horizon
While growing our stash
Our lives getting grand
Even better with cash
But we’re still in the red
Our neighbors blue too
Let America shine
It’s much up to you


This poem was put to a short music video and uploaded to the Peter G. Peterson Foundation website, campaigning against national debt.  They called this video “a rock anthem.”
