Sketchy Stick Figures

`

Let’s draw out stick-figure, self-proclaimed princesses/princes
Their flaccid, hollow, sketchy, non-accomplishments’ pretense
Their ballyhooed success stories, that, once sunlight exposed
Play out as horror stories before spot-on, paupers’ eagle eyes

The snotty haughty squint down, upturned, scrunched snouts
They taunt, tout; trot out their I-did-it-so-can-you-too tutorials
Intended to edify us “slobs”; well aware of their discordant irony
How, sans a doubt, these swaggering snobs did NOT do it at all

It is the oft ill-gotten financial coups, that prop up uppercrusters
Their high-rise, high and mighty, solid gold, goldbricking lifestyle
All craftily set atop the preexisting foundation; Long Established
By their well-heeled daddies; the gaggle of countless ancestors

“Too big to fail” elitists, who trumpet untold, quasi-legal triumphs
Who frolic in obscene prosperity; traffic in ugly white supremacy
Believe their excrement emits freshly plucked daisies’ fragrance
When, in all honesty, they can stink up a privy with the best of us

The affluent know not of their nation’s heritage & core principles
Errantly reckon their flags’ thin fabric gauges patriotism’s depth
Chickenhawks all, who provoke needless, endless, win-less wars
To be fought not by the rich wolf, but by the poor sacrificial lamb

The opulent ilk swim in the cesspool of sycophancy and cultism
No questions asked, they’ll go on a raze the homeland rampage
At the drop of their fascistic, narcissistic sore loser hero’s red hat
The guilty exonerated/further emboldened by swim-mate judges

One would expect gratitude to waft off of the billionaires’ attitude
To swathe numbnuts feds who grant ‘em extravagant tax breaks
And top cops, who blind eye anarchists/scofflaws/usurers/grifters
But, not in a land where the hoity-toity always trump the hoi polloi

Let’s compare and contrast high society’s shallow Hallies & Hals
To trusty Janes & Joes who, for entire lifetimes, struggle & strive
To do everything ethically and strategically right, yet, in The End
Have little to show for our honest labors’ Blood, Sweat and Tears
