Pater forgets

All hard twerking people who
Do the right thing
By the brass of our neck
And the tweak of our whims
Are the spring in our step
And the cheek in our grins
For the faster they turn
And the lower they earn
Is the more that Big Daddy
Is sure to bring in
For the more Pa collects
By the little ones’ debts
And the slower the churn
Is the higher return
Does enable the stable
Of status quo yearnings
For slavish creation
That stifles a nation
By burning the worms
Of essential potential
With peak aspiration
Until
But
Eventual
Pater forgets
That for love of the money
And power select
Lies the root of his evil
And cause of his death.
