A Poem About William Bryan Jennings of Morgan Stanley “Life is a Cab Away”

While this poem isn’t about foreclosures per se, it does involve a member of the 1% who brought down the housing market and the global economy. It is in regards to the story about William Bryan Jennings, the Morgan Stanley exec that stabbed a cab driver.

Amazing but not surprising how his attorney is spinning him as the victim. Kind of like how the banks want the general populace to believe they are the victims in the foreclosure crisis.

“Life is a Cab Away”

By Wrongedfellow

My name is William Bryan Jennings
It sounds so debonair
When I take a cab ride
I never pay the fare

A card carrying member
Of the vaunted one percent
I don’t like Middle Eastern people
or their foreign accents

I wish the ninety nine percent
Would get off their lazy asses
I work mine off at Morgan Stanley
And I pay a lot of taxes

For my kids a private school
For my wife, diamonds and furs
And for cabbies I reserve
My finest racial slurs

My job is very stressful
Underwriting worthless bonds
Attending charity auctions
And squandering TARP funds

In the leafy suburbs of Darien
I carry lots of clout
If you insist on me paying
I know all about bailouts

This story would get no press
If it weren’t for my riches
Besides, his hand is not that bad
It only required sixty stitches

So here’s the real story
I was out of cash that day
But the driver refused my offer
Of ten shares in BofA

Now I’ve been put on leave
But you know I’m living large
Life is good for the one percent
They always dismiss the charge

    Why did the cabbie have to kidnap the banker? Why couldn’t he just set the banker free?

    OR THINKING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX AND SEEING IT LIKE MICK JAGGER AND THE ROLLING STONES SEE IT …FREEDOM COULD BE JUST A SHOT AWAY…! AND WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD NOT HAVE_ ANY_ SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL…!!

  4. Fury says:

    bravo!

  5. Peter Everts says:

    Assault and battery should be worth 2 years in a state pen, easy.

  6. see says:

    Jennings probably thinks he was justified in refusing to pay because after all he got a free ride in the banking industry so why not a free ride from a cab driver. Also wonder how plastered this guy was.

  7. Stan Benjamin says:

    We’re Morgan Stanley, we steal billions.
    Jennings is a greedy banker, he is one of our minions.
    ‘Take this cabby (slash) I’ve taken many homes from people less shabby!’
