'Invisible Shackles' - Poem by Linda Winchell

Welfare handed out to millions these days,
Thought slavery was banished long ago?
But invisible shackles now hold them captive,
As if most didn’t already know.

Kept down below poverty level,
Dependent upon our Government’s monthly scraps!
It seems as though our Government’s plans been set,
While once again, mankind’s newest invisible slavery entraps.

If one tries to make better of themselves,
Their kind says, ” he or she’s now selling out, ”
So held down to a slave like dependence,
Of invisible shackles, they find hard to break out.
