Unlikely Scenario?

By B. R. Gowani

10% is the official unemployment rate
Nor is the unofficial rate too great:
The Economy is on a downward slide
And by now, people’s hopes have died

So all of the employed make a plan
To join the jobless; to form a clan
They declare a total general strike
To break the rulers’ disparity-dyke

Most dependent is the capitalist class
That forms a part of the exploiting brass
To maintain the greatest democracy façade
They appealed calmly while hiding the rod

Patriotism, nationalism, enemy, and flag
The usual bull shit were used to gag
But the people have really united this time
And are in no mood to join the elite’s chime

Technical support in foreign countries can
Guide; but to collect garbage you need Tom or Anne
Every general, CEO, and politician are in a rage
And feel like malnourished animals in a cage

The US ruling class is now extremely mad,
Consider Martial Law as an option, it had,
For the president it is an easy task,
Cause commander-in-chiefs don’t have to ask

Martial Law is justified by the regime
The media drowns people’s collective scream
The so called “choice” the people supposedly had
Vanished in the air like Osama bin Laden bad
