The Poor Sit and Smile

Twenty, thirty years of stacking
the deck against the poor and the

middle class and then legislation
to reduce taxes on the wealthiest

and the totally dishonest housing
bubble and its sudden burst and

the near fatal financial fall of
all falls in 2008 and 9 when we

all could have gone down the
economic drain until the next

eight years of stability and
now the utter, unbelievable in-

sanity of the last election and
the new tax bill promising heaven

to the middle but actually padd-
ing the pockets of the rich and

the oligarchs laugh and the pluto-
crats count and the fascists move

fast to take over the whole frag-
ile affair called by the founders

“democracy,” and all the while the
poor just sit and, knowingly, smile.
