‘Try, Try Again’ Revisited

With apologies to T. H. Palmer, author of Try, Try Again


If at first you don’t succeed,
Let Joe Biden intercede;
He’ll secure a guarantee
From his friends at DOE.

If you still cannot succeed,
Ask for help from Harry Reid;
He’ll secure a major grant
To construct a newer plant.

When investors start to frown,
Call for help from Jerry Brown;
California’s cash machine
Opens when the jobs are green.

When your banker starts to frown,
Hitch your pants and buckle down;
Blame the poor economy
As you move to bankruptcy.

Now is not the time to fret
Over massive sums of debt,
Unpaid bills or unpaid loans,
Or the public’s sticks and stones.

As a modern businessman,
You should have a ready plan
For Joe Biden, Reid and Brown,
When they next appear in town.

If at first you don’t succeed,
You can still get what you need
From the public slot machine,
If you call your business green.
