Poor People - Poem by Theorem The Truth Serum

A poor man's life is quite mundane.
A poor man's life is the majority.
These poor people have been silent
towards the crimes committed
against them everyday.
The land of the free has more
laws to protect the rich than
it does of the poor.
Unconstitutional this is, but
no politician is going to care
because by being in our government
they, themselves, have become
part of the rich if they were
not already considered as such.
The working man breaks his back
everyday so that this world can
function for those that are rich.
The working man is laughed at by
these insignificant rich that may be
remembered, but differently depending
upon the point of view of the individual.
Why does our world of today
hate the working man?
We take pay cuts for what we do
just so that your profits go up.
Why are we not appreciated?
Thank God for the labor union
they give me so many more rights
that our government does not
afford us poor people that
live in this world to struggle.

    I agree with everything you have written in this poem! Greed is the controlling factor in every buisness deal! And there is no deal that has a lasting benefit to the working people. Who is the true poor person? The working class who do thier job everyday, or the buisnessman, whose greed controls his or her every thought? I think the latter! Excellent poem! A ten. (Report) Reply
