Description

President Franklin Roosevelt, his administration, and The New Deal were not without enemies. This anti-psalm states “Mr. Roosevelt is my shepherd / I am in want, / He maketh me to lie down on park benches, / He destroyeth my soul … Surely unemployment and poverty shall follow me all the days of my life; / And I shall dwell in a mortgaged house forever.”
