Billionaire!

In the king size leather chair at the top of the tower

the billionaire surveyed the city below

now he was the ruler of his kingdom and people

who believed his every word

within his mind and being certain them understood

his intentions its said were good!

 

Though from unbelievable wealth totally certain

could achieve his full schedule

protecting his subjects from any ruthless enemies

never himself struggling to survive

nor ever evicted from the place he called home

the streets in all weathers to roam!

 

Accumulating huge debts that you could not repay

or standing in a food bank queue

paying your taxes all of your life but still in debt

not entitled to benefits to ease hardship

sleeping in those wet streets chilling your bones

nobody sympathetic to your groans!

 

Where even a small coffee is too expensive to buy

walking the only mode to get about

that constant fear of violence or hopelessness near

no warm abode or a safe dry bed

the divide so immense how could he comprehend

to his tower most would not ascend!

 

Comfortable in his leather chair promised he did care

but his vast fortune would never share!

Billionaire Elite!

The big city was is increasing its population

like a magnet pulling them in

from many places thinking its a great choice

manual workers and business brains

followed by the mega rich who soon invaded

for the few life was upgraded!

 

Prices surge higher they can pay any price

huge luxuries homes purchased

driving around in flashy expensive cars

looking down upon the peasants

unable to pay the inflated prices of living

the elite certainly not giving!

 

In a lineage of their own no money worries

they control how we survive

we just have any crumbs they lick the cream

each connected to the same club

the majority grow poorer in that food chain

the wealthy their comforts sustain!
