The Lyrics

At Thanksgiving tables in the USA this year, we should remember our many blessings, as expressed in TOS, and wonder how America will change by the next time families gather for this holiday feast.
[An OWS demonstrator]

We gather together to occupy Wall Street;
Greed chasers and haste traders will be made known.
When tricksters oppressing bow, cease from distressing,
Their raises will be tamed to far less than our own.

Astride us, inside us, Obama is joining,
His training explaining his bringing a sign. [1]
So from left-wing spinning, new rights we are winning;
With Bar-ack on our side, our story will shine. [2]

We all view text polls; we vow we'll be triumphant,
And pray that Obam-a free-spender will be.
Let our conflagration reshape his new nation;
Wealth tax be ever raised! Bar-ack, make stuff free!
[1] Not literally; he actually sent a signal of support by saying, "They (OWS) are expressing a broader frustration."
[2] ... as reported and editorialized by the MSM.

Change "Wall Street" to ", messing", "made known" to "laid low" and "to far less than our own" to "and far less will we owe" in stanza 1.
