The Powers That Be are Quite Inclusive; They Want All the Poor to Die

The powers that be aren’t racist,
they actually are quite inclusive,
and they won’t lie; their budget
proposals cry that they just want
all the poor to rise up and die.
Poor whites have the least hope
in their hearts, less hope than
poor Hispanics and less than
poor blacks. While the rich plan
on Machu Picchu, poor whites
particularly poor, rural whites
think a pinch or two of heroin
or a pill or two of Norco will
do, all the while federal assist-
ance programs are shrinking and
proposed cuts are rising and
the powers that be could care
less if the poor are white, black,
yellow or brown, they just want
all the poor to drown in their
pain and hopelessness and pills
and booze and suicide and vanish
from the earth so the rich can
have the whole, stinking, putrid
pie.
