Over at Mortgage Porter, I posted a poem that one of my coworkers penned for humor about the new Good Faith Estimate. One of my readers, who wishes to remain anonymous, has submitted a rebuttal which I think is very worthy of sharing here.
Twas the week before Christmas
When a poem made its rounds
About a change in RESPA
That was about to hit the town
HUD said it was good
It would limit the greed
Protect all consumers
And a nation in need
A nation that was harmed
By the very same practice
They seek to preserve
Though we all pay though our taxes
Nation, wake up! We must awake from our slumber!
The path we were on will take us all under
If we do not learn, and learn today
It can all be gone
Like it almost was Columbus Day
Do you not remember? Can you not see?
What securitization, corruption has done to thee?
The stock market tanked
Foreclosures still run rampant
And they said, even so, you cannot make this happen
Assemble the lobbyists, consumer groups and more
Awake your Congressman, Senator
Or contributions no more
“Kill this thing, kill this thing,
