Ninety-Nine Percent

Those motivated,
By the ninety-nine percent movement...
Should be commended,
For this stance they take.

It is true that corporate greed,
Has gotten out of hand.
And the banking system...
As of late,
Can say they have customers...
They can rely on as devoted fans.

But...
There has been one hundred percent,
Of those living hungry and in homelessness...
That have been seen on a daily basis.

And,
Wouldn't it have been a greater statement to make...
If those ninety-nine percenters,
Had come to empathize the ones in dire straits.
With equal entitlements,
But not given the same collective focus...
To have their predicaments remedied,
With a purpose to see this social tragedy end.
