Ninety Nine Percent Austerity

Still lower goes commonality
Toward an inescapable nadir
An absurdly loaded inequality
Beneath a crumbling veneer

See through our broken mirror
See society fractured there
As on opposite banks of a river
Obscene wealth and cut welfare

We’ve abrogated plain fairness
At the barrel of an austerity gun
And society that couldn’t care less
As long as their deeds are done

The culture of self is our new reality
No care for the unredeemable poor
Dispassion is our new commonality
And the one percent just accrue more
