From the great Bob Higgs:

Billions come bursting
From huge hydrants of money
I am stimulated

Credit freeze thaws now
Fed heats pipes until they steam
Winter is lovely

Consumers feel fine
Ready to mortgage their souls
John Maynard Keynes smiles

Saving’s so passe
Capital stock may be assumed
Let K be capital

Giant debt you bet
Chinese will serve fine dinner
Children cannot vote

Like rose in springtime
Welfare state blossoms anew
Laughter heard in hell

Update: See also Morgan Reynolds’s bailout version of “I Fought the Law.”
