Adverse Conditions

Recession.
Depression.
Suppression.
Oppression...
And,
Digression.

Which one of these,
Would those chronically hungry and homeless...
Under-employed and those countless unemployed,
Do you believe would accept as a direction...
That least affects their plight?
And...
Hold accountable,
For their adverse conditions with promises...
Over decades that have passed,
That they would prioritize the undoing of them.

'Uh...
Recession?
That seems easier to take when said.
Depression?
That sounds...
Well,
Depressing.
And some folks have been suppressed to digress,
With oppression most of their lives.
To take that away from them would be demoralizing.
I'm sure many of them would feel that way.
Since most of them are seen doing that to themselves,
On a daily basis.'
