Donald Trump, just like his old man

Woody Guthrie

famously wrote in the song "Pretty Boy Floyd"
Some will rob you with a six-gun, 
And some with a fountain pen.
If he were writing that lyric mindful of today's Trump news, he might say
Some will rob you with their tax cut, 
And some with their offshore banks.
All of which would be karmic and righteous, given Guthrie's song "Old Man Trump," about Trump senior, his landlord.

Final thought: Some will rob you by giving your money to serve their own ends to those who already have more than they will ever be able to count.
