This week marks the end of the TARP
And the pain of the bailout's still sharp.
It cost less than we thought
But for all that we bought
Its opponents continue to carp.
We were facing a massive default
That could make the economy halt.
And although the real push
Came from President Bush
Voters think it's the current guy's fault.
Europeans are mad
Cause the budgets they had
Were wishful thinking
And now they need shrinking.
And who else is nervous?
The Postal Service
Just failed to revamp
The price of a stamp
And why are they broke? Well, it's easy to see.
There's the pension they pay to a retiree
Plus you don't need a letter to contact me,
It's easy, reliable, instant and free
To put index finger to Enter key
Once you type in Marketplace.org.
