‘inherit the wind’

Narcissism wearing Outrage like an heirloom;
tribus, come of age,
parading its combustible dust with self-righteous air.

A world afire
and Justice, in despair, watching craven,
immemorial liars, gluttons, thugs and thieves.

Blood boils and spills and floods and, still,
they flag the breeze.

There will always be poor people in the land
Of Plenty Opportunity
When Poverty shall be among the asset classes
That the vulnerable may be like unto property.
And the serf shall serve the wealthier
That one shall be milked for the other’s money.
And all shall be hell
And all manna of things shall be swell
For those with shares in the honey.

Lowering Welfare

Low tax, low welfare‘ – because nothing shows the twisted logic of an integrity deficit better than CallmeDave’s perverse desire to make ill-being less expensive…

A “lower tax, lower welfare society”
Chillax, I’m Alright Jack decrees…
Decrease the means,
Increase the price
From which escape precarious life –
Shrink the cake and double the slice;
Raise the threshold of choice and rights
With magical beans of crony tripe –
Yeah, that’ll lower well-being, all right.
