What’s wrong with the world today,
when great wealth is available to take,
yet with all that money to pay,
poor people struggle forward steps to make.
We see people sleeping on the streets,
while billionaires play at spacemen,
governments take same steps on repeat,
and the rich are wealthier businessmen.
Who has the moral high ground,
if there is such to be gained,
are we inhabitants of capitalism’s compound,
to ensure the wealthy are maintained.
When will it all end as surely it must,
to restore fairness to our society,
so that in government we can trust,
and level up collective culpability.
