Good For Business

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

It has never mattered,
Who from the elite is picked to lead.
Or where they sit alphabetically,
After they've been requested to return...
R.S.V.P. invitations to them, Sent exclusively.

The one thing,
That should matter...
To anyone still conscious,
With reality kept to believe.
Is...
Seldom are those,
Who have obtained wealth...
Have on their minds,
Those working homeless.
Pinching pennies, nickles...
And adding up dimes.
Or will they soon be seen,
In public grieving over...
People living in poverty.
Living their lives depleted,
By corruption, deceit.
And other cases of greed.

To those not on top,
Should not be shocked...
When it becomes discovered.
That anyone who has achieved,
Elitist status...
Have only one thing together,
Shared to find.
And that is an offshore bank.
To redefined this crime,
As good for business.
While complaining,
About those begging on streets
For change from them,
Of any kind to allow...
The possibility to get,
Something affordable to eat.
