The Fruit Without The Tree

Empowering the indolent, the fox is now inside The vermin on the loose, the truth now plagued by lies The takers stalk the givers, those on the dole now scream “We want what you have worked for, —the fruit without the tree” (Villanova Pennsylvania: January, 2017)

I think I'd characterize this as a Grook, as you've created a very eye opening aphorism with that last stanza. Honestly I did not even know what a Grook was before joining this site, but I think it takes a unique sense of insight to create a successful and enduring one. Love this, great job!
