Money for Mates

They strut across the living stage,

gambling and grabbing their dues 

knowing no one will knock them down.

============

Each malicious intention formulated,

breaking laws and procedures, wearing

smiles for the media, while back-handing

================

their mountebank mates with contracts,

and bank balances while the hammered 

poor stare, starv and beg for crumbs.

==============

Why is it always the poor; who carry the

cross while the rich beat them with tax

cuts and mean monopolies to doom them?

=================

Will no one stand against such greed and

arrogant congenital corruption? For it is

in doing nothing we give our 

consent.
