Economic Trickle Tickle

Having tried the Great Lie of
“Trickle down” prosperity
And, even as their molesting digits
Stroked and squeezed and broke
Their crystal flutes and coupes
And their brass necks choked
On the last bubbles
Of Temerity’s tulip’d champagne,
They slithered, with that easy
Disdain of self-entitled delusion,
Right past the Commons’
“Trickle up” refrain but, knowing
That some placatory gesture to
Inclusion, would be necessary,
Crossed their fattened fingers
For a fabricated rectitude and
Announced a change in
Circumstantial attitude:
That little, still, would trickle
But is now re-qualified as ‘through’
