‘U.S. Will Order Pay Cuts at Firms With Bailout Aid’

               –The New York Times

The government has moved to intervene
To make the pay scale slightly less obscene.
The Wall Street types consider this unfair.
They say they earned their money fair and square,
And 20 million, say, is only middling
For someone who’s so good at money fiddling.
Of course, if things again go not as planned,
They’re back to Washington with hat in hand.
These fiddlers do deserve some admiration:
They’ve found themselves a win-win situation.
