You have been Re Defined!

July 4, 2015

Lets redefine Child Poverty, shall we

 

Oh dear, you are hungry today, little one

no breaky in your tum tum

 

those aren't really hunger pangs you are feeling

your parents are just lazy

cause they can't find a job in this economy

 

What else can we redefine, while we are at it

 

Oh my, you lost your leg from a bomb

that's not pain that you are feeling

 

It's just extreme discomfort

from being at the wrong place at the wrong time

 

Why, you should never have been born 

on that oil rich land

 

You know, we had no choice but to murder Saddam

and besides, you are a Muslim, you have no feelings

you are all about terrorism 

 

We are forced to drop bombs on your land,

train militants to divide you,

create and sell weapons that destroy you

 

Otherwise, our metaphoric War on Terror will be for nothing, you see

We won't make a hefty enough profit

and that will make our share holders unhappy

 

My oh my, you were blown up on a beach

while playing football

 

those aren't really dead bodies you're burying

 

that isn't the pain of loss that you are feeling

 

you had no right be living on that land, that your ancestors have been living on for centuries

that land is for Jews only, those with a Biblical claim

 

You are Muslim, and your belief in the same Bible means nothing

you have the wrong label

 

Oh well, your house got repossessed

those aren't real boxes you are packing

 

you aren't really feeling insecurity at all

that is all imaginary

 

You should never have taken on that mortgage anyway

how irresponsible of you

to want to live in a home that you can't afford

 

We only bail out the rich bankers

we don't help out lowly souls -- like you!

 

Time for Austerity

 

Why, we need the top 1% to become more wealthy!
