nativity scene

as far as i can see
we still haven’t eaten the rich
but they seem to be ahead of the game
at raping and killing us
one slave wage job
and dirty politician
at a time

with every prescription written

yes indeed, choose your medication
over groceries this week, mrs. america
just keep eating those pills, honey

money can’t buy happiness
how bloody naïve

the affluent are giving greatness
as a graduation gift

and when juxtaposed to creation
the perpetuation of wealth and poverty
boils down to this

the greatest difference
between the rich and poor
every birth in the family
being considered
a joy
or a tragic burden
