Dear Dominique Strauss-Kahn:

Dear Mr.Dominique Strauss-Khan:
Don’t go trying anything on,
Not sure if you’re guilty or not,
But we’ll find out when you’re on the spot,
IMF hands are dirty enough,
Without getting tangled in your sordid stuff,
Thought they were ugly as ugly as can get,
Burdening lands with unsupportable debt,
Turns out keeping bankers and business in beds,
Left a sense of power that inflated your heads,
But now you’ve time to think while sitting in jail,
Since an American judge wisely denied your bail,
The case will unfold, and we’ll soon get to see,
Since no doubt we’ll be watching on tv,
Whether the way that you think the game’s usually played,
Will get you off the hook with a hotel room maid.

  1. Well I am hung up on 2 sides of the story. One side says that the maid is money hungry and out to get some big bucks from one of the most powerful men in the world. Well, who use to be the most powerful man in the world. The other side of the story is that Dominique Strauss-Kahn thinks he can do anything given his position and did take advantage of the maid. The thing that tells me that Dominique Strauss-Kahn might have been the guilty one is the fact that he resigned from his position as IMF chief. Perhaps he knows that he is going down and left his seat with IMF.

  2. When I wrote the piece I just couldn’t resist the analogy with the IMF, though not everyone will think it is fair. Bruce Cockburn, in his song Call It Democracy, talks about the IMF and its relationship to smaller countries, saying “IMF, IMF, takes away everything it can get, always making certain that there’s one thing left, keep them on the hook with unsupportable debt…”
    Kind of like the IMF screws countries by making its own rules, and now DSK seems to have a history of doing the same thing with women.

Words, words, glorious words! Give me all of your words!
