We’re meant to overcome
not become the monsters
who lord over us.
We’re meant to know better
not follow their example.
Having “class” shouldn’t be
about money or status.
Most of that “class” was inherited
or stolen through slavery, not earned.
People at the bottom
stay there generationally
while the people at the top
buy more yachts, islands and mansions.
The game is fixed
the dice is rigged.
I’d be surprised if any of those
blue bloods ever worked a day
in their entire life.
Rewriting laws to favor their cause
is theft not work.
Evicting grandmas out of greed
is robber baron thievery.
During his presidency
the idiotic Bush Jr. said
he didn’t know how
grocery scanners worked
because he’s never needed to know.
The obnoxiously rich
have countless servants
like the idiotic Kings
who had slaves wipe their royal ass
because they helplessly couldn’t.
Education preaches a workoholic ethic
as if hard work amounted to anything
but a broken back and a drained soul.
You and I will never be one of them.
We’re cattle, we’re products, we’re consumers
of their useless whims.
Never envy or try to be like them.
Stand proud in the midst of tragedy.
What you are is more
than what they could ever become.
What’s life worth if you’ve sold your heart
You can’t eat diamonds.
