classless society

The classless society 

It is now official the working class is dead
we are all middle class except for those 
who clean the office floors, make products
and make cheap clothes, they have no right
nor a future, we accept that as we need 
this big minority of current slaves to keep up 
our illusion we are a modern nation. 
This minority -luckily for us –does not see 
their power if no one produced anything or 
cleaned streets and offices, we would drown 
in filth and overflowing sewers; we would 
pay a them handsomely and respect those who 
keep our cities livable.

    Hush truth!!! I say, no work is degrading, only as we treat workers with disdain and abuse the people who are already subservients, mostly humble and giving. O, the disrespect these poor people bear...unbelieveable!!! Good words here Jan. One love and thanks for your visit. Joy Wells

    Is that not the truth? I was thinking something similar while listening to the pres/VP debates. First year I've watched. Glad your blood pressure speaks of your inner youth. My cholesterol is right on par with what Jackie Gleason's must have been. love, Kathy
