“Other people’s money”: Trump is addicted to OPM.
“Other people’s money”, what Trump likes to spend.
O-P-M was a campaign theme.
Developed his properties using cash bank’s would lend,
But bankruptcies led to being cut from their team.
Then Don Jr. confided the Russians invested.
Don Sr. says no and tries to downplay
We may never know since he hasn’t divested
Unlikely his taxes ever see the light of day.
Trump had a foundation for charitable offers
Turns out most the money was given by a friend
Disbursements for lawsuits and to politician’s coffers
Closed down the foundation lest he have to defend.
He told his supporters it'd be Mexico’s wall
They thought that meant pay for time and supplies
But now we know taxpayers will be taking the fall
Failed negotiation or one of his lies?
Now, he’s got money via Treasury access
Brand-building funded by our bank account
Trump golf and hotels, Mar-a-Lago promotions
The taxpayer’s bills are starting to mount.
Don’t get me wrong, he trades off expenses
To cover security in Melania’s New York hood
Cut the National Endowment, Arts not a favorite of Pence's.
And don’t forget defunding Planned Parenthood.
Add millions for missiles, reversed mid-East plans
Was he moved by low ratings or the children affected?
Weren’t these the same humans blocked by immigration bans?
Got his first ratings bump since getting elected.
Benefit of doubt? Let’s assume he’s big hearted
And “other people’s money” lowers risk, strengthens bids
But his history is worrisome and his governing uncharted
A war choice shouldn’t be easy ’cause you’re using “other people’s kids”.
