THE RICH GET RICHER

A bonus, a discount
Is not meant for you
They’re given to the rich
Who are never past due.

No rights and no cuts
No benefits in kind
Nothing gets shared
To those left behind.

Paycheck to paycheck
At minimum wage
No chance to break even
Not a cent left to save.

Where is the incentive?
You muddle along
You work 40  hours
Your struggle prolonged.

The rich get richer
The poor left behind
The middle class flounder
Still waiting in line.
