Because Poverty Means Death

Aristocracy

Corporatocracy

Toxic hypocrisy

Gullibility of the city

Flamingly pretty

Impracticality managing tragedy

Sharks hocking life insurance

Because poverty means death

Melodramatic,

Mall made fanatic,

Background static for a consumer tumor to spread and grow

There’s a line you can’t cross,

You know ?

Because poverty means death

It’s Question Time,

  Cancer patients take their last breath

As bombs fly from the sky

Afghanistan opium keeps us high

still no one seems to want to try

a better allocation of our resources

Horses for courses

Oil lights the torches and scorches

Those who can’t afford water any more

Because

poverty

means

death
