Buy more takeout and hire a maid. Reside
in a mansion and summer in the south of France.
Winter in Aspen. Take the foolish chance
of inheriting every single cent. Slide
giggling through life and take a towering pride
in benefitting from mere circumstance.
Never, ever let the poor advance.
Among your peers, deliberately elide
ability and wealth. Hog the best spots
at the most exclusive schools. Oppose at each
instance any opportunistic ploy
to materially improve the lives of world’s have-nots;
they should’ve been better born; instead they leach
from our locked reserves of unnecessary joy.

One thought on “The Poor Suit of Happiness

  1. more class warfare. you & Saul Alinsky.

    they leach
    from our locked reserves of unnecessary joy.

    and that leach has two daughters, crying “give, give.” awesome stuff. welcome back to blogoville.
