21st century faux

Some are still washed up
some have dried out,
some are still on the happy juice
Some have sadly died out

I place no blame
no one to shame
it is as it has always been.

It could be better,
of this I am sure,
we could educate the rich
to help out the poor

don’t let them kill you
with food banks
or food stamps
which are
aimed at
keeping you down.
