I write what I feel…

Stalemate

Gimme more, gimme more,
Cry the wealthy.
Gimme some, gimme some,
Cry the poor.

Our stomachs are almost empty
While you have acquired plenty ~
This world is biased, don’t you see ~
Divide the spoils impartially,
There’s enough for all to share.

Oh, no you don’t, the rich reply,
We work hard for what we own,
We don’t just sit around and moan,
We know that we must get to earn
Recompense for all our work.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  1. This is brilliant and just so true…

  2. ugh. its the reality here as well…the ever widening gap between the haves and nots….

  3. Megacorps and megabanks and elected official lackeys have sucked all the wealth out of the economies of US preventing upward mobility. The right to vote is a mere illusion of democracy. We have become politically and economically disenfranchised. Kinda makes “Workers of the world unite” sound very reasonable to me.

  4. No country in the world gives more to help the poor than America.

  5. That is the U.S. in a nutshell, those who have want to keep and those who have not want to take… Work is the answer, do not reward laziness, and do not punish the laborer/saver.. Create jobs and let everyone develop a sense of self-worth. I’ve always said that you take the best care of that which you have earned..

  6. Perhaps they should be saying
    “YOU work hard for what we own”
