Monopoly



          Honour pride and ego
          I gave up on life years ago
          Not much hope, death let it be so
          No money for passing go.

          Land on chance or community chest
          Just another part of societies test
          Main goal to be the best
          Try to win forget the rest.

          What’s this you tripled your double?
          Now you got yourself in trouble
          Off you go directly to jail

          Mortgage everything to the bank

          Re–programme your emotions all over again
          Just when you thought you had a friend
          Everything quickly coming to an end.

          Is it me or the world that’s being ignorant?
          Can you truly understand the predicament?

          Anti-social society
          The noise of bureaucracy
          Sounds like a whole heap of hypocrisy
          Unbearable reality
          What is blissful harmony?

          Game of life
          Roll the dice .....

          Forced error or just poor choice?
