New Poetry

Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! They Cried!
The American Manufacturing Sector has died

Jobs making lamps, Nike's and jeans have long ago

been shipped overseas

Greed ravages the Land like a infectious disease

Low Taxes! More tax breaks Titans of Industry Implore

Sending their profits to Tax Shelters off-shore

While people have not seen decent wages in ages

And the hunger pangs of the poor go on ignored
And the American Empire is now winding down

The People long for a return to more prosperous days

They'll never return! Never? Never!

The Wealthy got more, the Poor got shown the door

downsized to balance the ledgers.
