Forced Austerity - Poem by Ray Lucero

Gone the days of "Great prosperity"
"Middle Class" has "Gone to seed"
Feds' impose "Forced austerity"
After failing economy atrophied

Poor n' homeless hit the street
Becoming denizens of the night
Burgling cars n' homes to eat
Wrath n' fury of police incite

President n' Congress
Are both deaf n' blind
Ah…but I digress,
Don't wanna be unkind

Future now controlled by "World Banks"
Who care not for what they burn n' crash
They just roll our more troops n' tanks
Create more debt n' steal our cash

Seems to be but one solution;
A peaceful-global revolution
