Saw this today on a website

Pete Seeger wrote this additional verse to Bill Steele's song "Garbage" in the 1970's. It could be considered prophetic for times that we are now experiencing.

Oh, Garbage! Garbage! Garbage! Garbage!
Their stocks and their bonds ? all garbage!
Garbage! Garbage! Garbage! Garbage!
What will they do when their system goes to smash
There's no value to their cash
There's no money to be made
But there's a world to be repaid
Their kids will read in history books
About financiers and other crooks
And feudalism, and slavery
And nukes and all their knavery
To history's dustbin they're consigned
Along with many other kinds of garbage.
Garbage! Garbage! Garbage! Garbage!

Perfect! Again, history repeats--------and costs twice as much every time around. If only it all would lead to the demise of them.

Pete Seeger might have had 1920s Germany in mind, those images of kids with wheelbarrows of useless money.
