The economy that exists today,
invites the Grim Reaper to have its way
with our minds and emotions,
even through our tenacity and devotions,
the doldrums set in, encouraging,
negative patterns of melancholia, sickness
An economy that has forced its residents
to unleash wrath upon themselves, through
warped psyches and ill health,
People are dropping like flies and no one seems
to hear their cries,
Life continues to move at warped speeds, while
people become casualties of a tragic economy.
