The common wisdom oft declares
The average voter only cares
If jobs increase (but not the wage
As capitalists mildly assuage);
The common man is not concerned
If justice is to all returned,
Rather upon himself absorbed,
The rest abstraction to be curbed.
So common wisdom says; if true
Then education begs review,
Revision, value inculcated
For justice well adjudicated,
Or else, if not, the voter then
Deserves what chaos falls to men
When rule of law, by lies betrayed
Succumbs benumbed to truth decayed.
If, by perchance, the populace
Retreats into its carapace
Of willful ignorance and fear
When it observes injustice near,
(As when a stolen seat is filled
Greed’s coalition so to build,)
Then such a country, grown unwise,
Deserves its “just desserts”: demise.
