Deflation's Havoc - Acrostic Sonnet

Difficulties daily will increase
with mobile networks ready to deploy
Endangering some structures which have stood
through vested interests strengths refortified.
For many years. Causes misunderstood
are though Effects have been identified.
Lasting unemployment none police.
Underemployement traps await ahoy.
Although inflation’s ills will soon decrease,
releasing energies to help enjoy
The boost consumption always hoped it would
harness from synergies intensifed,
It may not answer prove for common good
in village/world multi-complexified.
Oligarchies caged demand release
prepare to pounce with golden ounces troy.
Now liberties are threatened, freedom's fleece
some fain would shear through techno progress ploy.
Short-sighted these, mistaking trees for wood,
as shifts in paradigm unprophesied.
Havoc causing while imprudence could
accelerate a trend liberticide,
Open Pandora’s box when credits cease.
Much, both ‘bad’ and ‘good’ Change may destroy.
Can the Welfare State survive the shock,
information ethics guarantee,
Kindle hopes and future growth unlock
channel, challenge ubiquity?

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
