Geezerville

Hooverville is the popular name for shanty towns built by homeless people during the Great Depression. They were named after Herbert Hoover, who was President of the United States during the onset of the Depression and widely blamed for it.

Now, in another sign that we are in a second Great Depression, tent cities put up by the homeless have returned.

Across America, there are Obamavilles in Seattle, Washington; Oregon (Dignity Village); Sacramento, California; San Diego, California; Reno, Nevada; Sierra Vista, Arizona; St. Petersburg, Florida; Huntsville, Alabama; Athens, Georgia; Nashville & Chattanooga, Tennessee; Columbus, Ohio; Ann Arbor, Michigan; Providence, Rhode Island; Lowell, Massachusetts; and Lakewood, New Jersey.

Below is a poem, “Geezerville,” penned by Sig94, a reader and commenter of FOTM.

Geezerville

A poem by Sig94

Nibblin on Alpo
Watchin the debt grow
In my old age I still have to toil
The economy’s snake bit
My savings ain’t worth shit
Now my healthcare’s denied and I’m beginning to boil

Chorus:
Wastin away again in Old Geezerville
Worrying how I’m gonna pay for a new knee
Some people claim that Obamacare’s to blame
You fools, ain’t nothin for free

I know the reason
His words were so pleasin
Promising everything under the Sun
But now it’s four years later
National debt is much greater
And all they want to do is take away our guns

Chorus:
Wastin away again in Old Geezerville
Worrying how I’m gonna pay for a new knee
Some people claim that Obamacare’s to blame
You fools, ain’t nothin for free

Banks and unions are thriving
While the economy’s diving
Obama plays golf, Michelle pisses money away
But illegals get welfare
Free college, and I swear
This country has tanked, we have all been betrayed.

Chorus:
Wastin away again in Old Geezerville
I guess I’ll have to make do with my bum knee
Some people claim that Obamacare’s to blame
You damn fools, ain’t nothin for free
