15.       THE RICH

You who have the monopoly
of labour,
have your wealthy hours
on the grace of society
as you open your tollgates
of rent and interest.

You are fatten like dates
and enslaving the rest
as you believe in the best
leaving no one to rest
in this competitive test.

Yet each of us are equal to the rest
then why is a monopoly the best
at another’s cost
and equally lost
for the same labour’s post
then we all shall have the most.
