Every year there are more MEs
clinging to a smaller slice of WE,
more of us:
rats fighting for dwindling stuff.
And while we’re fighting
they’re busy rewriting
the rules that give them more,
the rules that keep us poor.
Freedom intended for the masses
has instead created classes,
one for the expanding poor
and one for the few who have more.
