Same As it Ever Was

Steal a loaf of bread to feed your family

and you are sent to jail,

corrupt a nation’s politics

then you are deemed too big to fail.

Same as it ever was

it all comes down to money

and once you have it

everything else is just funny.

You are free to make up

the rules as you go along,

a lack of conscience or regret

if what you do is wrong.

Life Liberty and equality

is an admirable notion

but in reality, it means nothing

to those void of emotions.

Nothing can knock them off

their formidable pedestal

even when evidence

of corruption is irrefutable.

A vicious circle

that will never end

in a society where aspirations

are all pretend.
