Nobel Prize For Economics - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Goes to our leaders for not being serious
about stopping people getting rich
by taking from the poor,
because that's how they got rich
and that's how it's done;

for maximizing the Very poor offshore
and the Not-So on,
because the more the latter on,
the less the chance of revolution
becoming the only solution;

and for finely balancing the Very poor on
and persuading the Not-So on
that the Very poor on
are responsible
for their Very own condition.

    An interesting take on good economics. The poor are exploited and the rich get richer. Good one. (Report) Reply
