The Crusader

I’d like to nominate myself
To chair the RPB.
I’d keep in hot pursuit of those
Who charge too high a fee.

I’d like to start the witch-hunt now –
As soon as we convene –
For anyone who makes a cent
By selling gasoline.

I’d use the hammer that I wield
To garnish and to seize
The excess profits that are made
By oil companies.

Those vultures make two cents
On every gallon that they sell:
A capital offense.

I’d bust them back to half a cent
For every gallon pumped,
And blame them when the news reports
The retail price has jumped.

And only when I have in hand
The obscene profits made,
Will I be satisfied to end
My RPB crusade.
