Trickle Down Syndrome

crying-statue-of-liberty

Once upon a simpler time

A land was found so nice

That people came

From all the world

To share the paradise.

The leaders, in their wisdom,

Formed a great democracy,

And every person had a voice,

And every man was free.

But as they wrote the laws,

There was a fact

They didn’t heed:

That freedom

Can be undermined

By man’s inherent greed.

One day they chose a leader

Who had said he’d

help the poor,

And though the man

Was filthy rich,

He wanted more and more.

He told the people

That the way to make

Their system healthy

Was to dig a little deeper

In their pockets

For the wealthy.

As you guessed,

The poor got poorer–

The rich would never share,

And so the people voted in

A greedy billionaire.
