    Until the Handle Becomes Too Hot

    When the consumer can no longer afford
    For necessities to pay
    And a one fold though fairly strong cord
    Can be broken in just a day

    When an economy built on the backs of those
    Who make daily sacrifices
    Then it without saying goes
    Things will crumble from exorbitant prices

    When your rights to justice under the law
    Cost too much cash for you to pay
    Then there is a serious flaw
    In how we dispense justice per say

    And when some rather revel in the dream
    Than do what it takes to get there
    Then involuntarily they dam up the stream
    Creating a body of ideas that lead to nowhere

    And when tax cuts becomes the god
    Of those who don’t have to spend
    Why can’t they perceive why times are so hard
    And their mad edict bring to an end

    But human nature throughout history
    Has shown that mankind is a stubborn lot
    And will hold on to the ladle of false prosperity
    Until the handle becomes too hot

    This scribe was almost to hot to handle since it was full to the brim with nothing but the naked truth. I am greatly impressed with your pen on tonight

    Amen, my brotha!

    This is how we "buy what we want and beg for what we need."

    Shouldn't take the bottom to drop out to realize the foundation is shaky, but often times that's the way it is. I appreciate the intensity of your writes poet.
