Elites Have All the Wealth – Written Monday 11th January 2021 (Aged 45)

Elites Have All the Wealth

they have been fooled by –
by an economic lie
that does not quell the anger inside
they turn to capitalists –
both real and imagined for their answers
but no questions are examined
because the elites –
have no interest
in sharing their wealth
or adhering to ideas of –
fairness and social justice
they do not acknowledge privilege
and would rather spread hate –
and alter facts or deny history
it is economics –
and economic policy
that has led to their plight
and the idea that privilege –
is always coloured white
the loss of industry the inequalities in health
the stagnation of hope
it is all economic policy because –
elites have all the wealth
