    Getting a Job


    The Government says;
    ‘the people we serve are a resource’
    I guess this means,
    we are like stocks and bonds:
    when we no longer bring in money,
    we are cashed-in
    to die in some darkened alley.

    The Government says,
    getting a job is good;
    leads to a sense of accomplishment,
    provides economic security,
    in a fulfilling and independent life:

    Yeah, but isn’t it more this way:
    that fat-cat Politicians need taxpayers,
    to keep up appearances
    and pay back political promises?

    The more money a government rakes in,
    the fatter the individual “elected official”
    can legally get.
    Who ever heard of a government
    going on a tax diet?
