A new nursery rhyme

This song can be used to help children learn about neo-liberal economics.  You will need a cake (cut into thirds), a farmer, a banker, an oilman, dice, and lots of hungry children!

 

The farmer wants a slice

The farmer wants a slice

We’re gambling with the economy

We’ll give him a slice in a trice.

 

The banker wants a slice

The banker wants a slice

We’re gambling with the economy

We’ll give him a slice in a trice.

 

The oilman wants a slice

The oilman wants a slice

We’re gambling with the economy

We’ll give him a slice in a trice.

 

The children want a slice

The children want a slice

But they’ve gone and gambled it all away

So we’ll give them a roll of the dice.

  1. I would change the children to politicians or if you must have a two-syllable word, guv’ment. However, I think it’s more like they would want the whole pie if they can. Thanks for stopping to visit and liking Thursday Thought.
