The Greeks said no to Germany’s plan
To make them pay off their debt
When austerity came, a depression began
With poverty now they’re beset.
The parties in Greece can no longer agree
Which is the best path to follow
Some say they must stick with austerity
Although now that rings pretty hollow.
Others say no, we must chart our own path
Even if that means defaulting
But bankers will act with predictable wrath
Their credit they’ll be assaulting.
No parties can form a strong coalition
No government comes of this stew.
It seems like the Greeks have to make an admission
That no one knows what to do.
If Greece leaves the Euro zone what happens then?
No one knows how the zone will react.
In place of the Euro, they’ll have drachmas again
But their value will surely contract.
The outlook in Greece is really not good
The future looks pretty bleak
All the options are bad and not understood
It’s disheartening now to be Greek.
