Unified Understanding

People wish to keep their entitlements.
But unwilling to have a dime from them,
Invested to be spent.

People want their quality of life maintained.
Without a sacrifice from them solicited.
Although they approve with recommendation, ,
The sight of others suffering.

People self righteous and self centered,
Think of this life...
As their means to profit and benefit exclusively.

And when their delusions are crushed by nature...
That's the only time they seek,
A unified understanding with a giving to get...
From others...an undeserved empathy.

A whole lot of double talk obscured by a humdrum style in addition!
