The Rich Get Richer

Property taxes rise
Car payments rise
Grocery bills increase
Medical expenses through the roof
Utilities; a little here a little there
Air? How long until they change for air?

Wages? Oh they remain stagnant
Not enough profit for increases
So they say
Overtime? No you’re salary

So you work a little longer
Press a little harder
So that a government that appears to serve no one, can have a little more money
So corporations making billions, can continue to run the world
And a rich man who cares not for his people, can fill his gold lined pockets

While you wonder if you can continue to afford your home
Whilst paying the rich to get richer
