End of March

Looking down, abashed
As markets crash
The capital class fear loss of status
Nonetheless, some in that bunch will gain much
As a result of access to insider information
Or simply the ability to adjust positions and adapt to new market conditions
Such that forces move in their favour even during a credit crunch

The so-called consumer class
Don’t fully understand their plight – such a farce
On their minds – debilitating comforts
Their actions – faux pas, peccadilloes and digital stunts
Their wishes – maintaining gainful employment
Their worries – basics becoming scarce
Lives of the soon to be the underclass – alas!

Those without – the marginalised
Have little to live for
Since minus the virus
They’d still be facing the demise
So one wonders how long their hopes will last


Sentiment vs Common Sense

To understand cause and effect
One has to research

To occupy land
One has to pay tax

To influence change
One has to earn respect

For it matters not so much the consequence
If one doesn’t understand the intent

Matters little what one’s post code reads
If one’s name is not on the title deed

Matters less what one says
If the message falls on deaf ears
