I am on the road today – so here is a short one.

As you might know by now, I didn’t like reading fairy tales to my oldest daughter when she was younger. And the same goes for those rhymes for children. I just couldn’t stand that these “stories and rhymes” where so far removed from reality. But I think I might have found a nice little loophole. Bringing those rhymes to politics. Yes! Make them relevant. And I’ll start with an old favourite. Because the “piggy” part is just so relevant to politics. So let’s go.

This little piggy went to market…

And the market crashed. But don’t worry, all you find in the market is Chinese made in any case. 

This little piggy stayed at home

Because there is no job. And then he lost his home in any case. Thanks to Mr Foreclosure and Mrs Subprime.

This little piggy had roast beef

Because he can. The rich always gets richers. Just ask the Bear. Where’s my $300?

This little piggy had none

Some little piggies will always have none. No health. No home. No hope. No nothing. None. Just. None. The poor will get poorer.

And this little piggy went… “wee wee wee” all the way home…

No they won’t. They will never get home because the Mac said he’ll keep them there for another 100 years or so. So many will never have the chance to say “wee wee wee”. Just a cry from those left at home. The little ones, wives, husbands and folks. They’ll keep on crying a “wee wee wee”.
