Spinning out of control
With a few that "have" and
The rest on the "dole."
The plight for most is an awful shame,
There are those who wish only to blame.
The political pundits who traverse this scene
Are bereft of ideas and can only demean.
The country flounders, leaders can't cope,
We wander a landscape devoid of hope.
Enlightened arrogance is ever growing,
Failure our destiny without care or knowing.
Isn't it enough we struggle to eat, have
A roof over out heads, shoes on our feet?
The path we tread will test our will,
For us to survive will take real skill.
I only hope we can travel as one,
If we cannot nothing will get done.
