Class Rule Imposed Suicidal Russian Roulette - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

poor people youth adults
especially through childhood
who don't have the support

nurturing encouragement
of family friends patrons
often play Russian Roulette

many hurt struggle fail
to achieve their potential
life circumstances lethal

possibility potentially
world dealt with ruthlessly
rich patronage decisively

deals potent energy
favoured endowed
infused with energy

manipulates sport privilege less society
reaps sweat shop labour productivity
employs prerogative right of immunity

exempt from evil cuff burdens
not enjoyed by exploited herds
deals corruption vulture birds

to razor wire stock adequate results
sliced corpses used up corporation insults
lays off benefits strips for profits

some surpass these limitations
rise above origin tenement clays
dream live impossible dreams

all are inherent blessed
with origin creativity
refuse rules laws imposed

in exploitation stupidity
patronus nurture bestowed
divine love gift humility
