Tariff increase: cost of living increase, taxes go up, more revenue for Government

HOW SELFISH

Only a select few
Can spellbound the masses
It seems
We lift them up on a plinth
Made up of the new third estate
And glorify them as demigods
They walk not
But trample all underfoot
We are their minions
Enthralled to them we
Give them all
Unholy wolves
Swaddled in wool are they
Devouring all with their avaricious mindset
Greed is a bad thing
When it dissolves within and without
An inbred top heavy hierarchy
Collude to maximize expose
With minimum opportunity
For anyone unfortunate enough
Not to be the latest sage

Politics
Economics
The arts
A few control the building blocks of society
Exerting undue pressure downwards
Maiming those they lord over
Stymieing their advancement
Pulling strings to advance their own cause
The myopic view of the elite
Is no way to run a democracy
A limited gene pool of ideas and talent
Hinders the legacy
That today passes to the future
A sure way for eventual extinction
Selfishness and graft
Those boils that erode decency in a society
Harass the pillars of unity
Implosion being the only likely outcome
An impermeable ceiling of granite
Keeps those deemed not worthy in their place
Resentment festers
Rioting being the only billboard
That the oppressed then know

Those in the middle
Those supposed champions of the new economy
Are full of hyperbole
Their spiel of being undervalued
Naught but insouciant drivel
Blatant opacity of the distribution of wealth
Mangles the unity that the some for all mantra
Could achieve
No trickle downward to irrigate
The parched ambition and drive
Of the underclass
An unjust society we may live in
But we all contribute to the way
We live
Give
Take
But also let another man partake
