Recession

The economy is in recession,
I have a confession.
It’s all ideology,
an apology
about things going wrong.
We all need to stay strong,
to consume plenty.
To grow wealthy.
People losing,
did no choosing.
They cause mayhem in the voting booth,
but the once succeeded in life say they have only themselves to shoot.
Failure isn’t an option,
it’s supposed to be a choice in life.
Being peeled like an onion,
being gutted by the knife
the governments wield
their shield the cops,
taxes, fines for people as cattle in meat shops.
