Haiku 47

Haiku 47

Are you prepared for :
Tent cities, food lines, "the poor"?
Will you ignore them ?

Deny them their job,
If they don't tax rich dudes more -
Vote out incumbents.

"Oldsters live too long",
My doctor said. What's to do -
Smoke, drink, eat, drop dead ?

Carry the lit torch,
Lighting the path to justice -
Dishonor loves dark.

Reality stings,
We're "to hell in hand basket" -
Rich/poor gap widens.

"Out of sight, out of ..." ,
Needs gated communities -
How high can walls rise ?
