THE PROLETARIAT’S PLIGHT

Work for your money!
I heard him roar like a lion in
perfidy
While I hastily fired on like an
ox
To realize the day’s wage was a
hoax.
Oh! It’s the bourgeoisie’s ploy
To drain my strength and use me
till am without breath,
Then subject me to another
psychological torture,
Reiterating who’s patrician and
plebeian.
Getting home to another Armageddon,
It’s either prices have gone up or
stocks are plunging,
Or a neighborhood campaign of
thieving politicians,
Who have come to fool us with
tales of hope.
Humpty Dumpty!
Life is a journey of survival
Perhaps, heaven is the Eldorado it
is painted to be,
Seemingly, wouldn’t it be a curse
to lose on the other side?
