The Downward Spiral

I live in a country  
thats over regulated with petty rules
They tell me i must participate
 or be labelled as a fool
They make me spend thousands on courses
 to bring me up to speed
But when I get the ticket,
 its stuff ill never use or need.
I work long days
 and get paid well for what i do
But there isnt much left
 after the tax man is through.
They gouge us at the gas pumps, 
Yet we process it right here.
And insurance rates are climbing, 
soon driving will disappear.
The rich keep getting richer,
 and fight for the last dollar to be had,
Seems to me being stranded alone on a deserted island
 aint all that bad.

    I don't know how I missed this one Carl, but it's a gem---the city just tripled the price of my occupational license---they want a nation of slaves. Great Poem

    - Yes, the rich always want more - but wealth and gold is not happiness - maybe a desert island ... without high gasoline prices .... rush and bustle ...could be better !?!?!? :)) - Well written,Carl ! - oxox // Anne-Lise :)
