The One Percent

The One Percent

I have outgrown longevity
and poverty has taken the best of me
and now I am an indigent hack
I stopped  dying my long  hair black
it would wise to speed up my demise
to smoke , imbibe and pack away carbs
to swill the wines of Government need
to live my life without despair
then die for no one else will care
Theres nothing more for me to fear 
but then we have Obamacare
Someone has bought your American Dream
and collectively bargained the Unions out
who created the once known Middle Class
which is now replaced  with American Greed

How much money can you spend 
until you reach the bitter end
for helping somene can go far
In the scheme of life of 
how much is enough
avoid the third martini at the bars
limit yourself to just five cars
The French Riviera is no more nearer
Then Deerfield Beach in your area
think of all the dough you’ll save 
to pay a tax for the struggling knave
or someday you’ll lose everything 
and say to yourself what have I done
 To join into the paupers fun(d) 

This is NOT a political poem-just satirical fun
