The EU / IMF bailout package for Ireland has a punative intrest rate, designed to make Ireland return to the bond markets at the earliest opportunity. Not before the rich European states have fleeced us in times of trouble, even if we did make such trouble for ourselves.
You know who your freinds are in times of trouble, and they dont seek to make a profit from your problems. We see clearly that the EU and IMF are not friends of Ireland, and I hope we will learn from this.
A Friend in Need
Can Be Screwed Indeed
A friend in need can be screwed indeed
From them you can a fortune make
Tell them how their trouble is all their own fault
And advantage of their problems take.
They look on us as the gypsy European state
We sit on the side of the table and for aid beg
When all we do is ask for help like with any friend
But they want to knock us down a peg.
And like a greedy moneylender at Christmas
Point out only they will lend to us
So put up, pay up, and shut up
And about the interest don't make a fuss.
We are at the shotgun point of capitalism
The IMF / EU: they are but a false friend
True ones don't take advantage of the weak
Even if its your fault, they to help a hand extend.
And seek not to make from you a profit
Only ask back what they to you did give
When your down, like Ireland now, you see who true friends are
We as a nation will not forget this as long as we live....
