Cuban Cigar

Beaming with pride

after collecting your new car

from the garage forecourt.

Carefree as you drive

through the city streets

observing the envious eyes

on your new transport.

Not that you mind

those jealous looks

you were once in their shoes

but now you have a fat chequebook.

Now you are the king

of all you survey

after deciding nothing

was ever going to get in your way.

It did not matter

when you decided to break the rules

to make sure you rose

to the top of life’s cesspool.

You never worried about

the families you destroyed

after you made

them all unemployed.

Now sitting here

in your shiny new car

you are oblivious to their troubles

as you light another expensive Cuban cigar.
