Common Criminals We Helped To Make - Poem by James B. Earley

The noble term 'entitlement'
…‘Tis funds expressly owed
Poverty stricken folks amongst us
…For bearing whatever load

Been a bit of grand finagling
….Of that term entitlement
Grab a seat sat down awhile
…Gain indeed…enlightenment

In the process....recognize
...Thievery from the Nation's needy
Across this land of the plenty
…At the mercy of the greedy

Corporations…..run amok
….Within this day and age
Literal slavery….of the job….
Americans not paid a living wage

Multi-Million dollar bankers
…Politicians…….on the make
Usurped the term...entitlement
….Common criminals on the take

Society….their...enabling partner…
Stealing from the Nation's needy
Across this land of the plenty
….At the mercy of those greedy

Multi-Million dollar bankers
…Politicians…….on the take
Who've hijacked the term entitlement
….Common criminals...we helped to make
