Democracy turned Her

back on the needy;

feeding spoiled fat cats

from crystal decanters-

while the poor go foodless,

then  penniless,

become

precariously housed

or worse…

living in the streets

in ramshackle shelters-

the corrupt royalty

watch from gilded thrones on high,

sitting in judgement

of those less fortunate,

having never walked a mile

in our threadbare,

war-torn sneakers-

                                                      -freya-
