Distribution of Youth

The distribution of youth
burns as uncomfortable truth,
one part sent to fight other’s bets
another condemned to lifelong debt,
one part in institutional incarceration
another indentured poverty across the nation
while the one percent learning to pull the strings
inherits the corporate keys to the American dream.
