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.
