The Political Class






The discrepancy between rich and poor
is not explained simply by
their endless greed for more.

Evolution of unbridled capitalism;
question whether democracy
can survive this widening schism.

The powerful, the rich
historic for their deals;
the ante's reached a fever pitch.

Corporations have economies,
(the powerful rule the nations)
larger than the world's countries.

This has created a brand new class,
Their grasp on liberty is tight;
Democracy's expensive, reserved for the Political Class.

The Politicals know to keep us deprived:
People in need have no time or attention
To organize, to stop them. For centuries, they've survived.
