Do you get the effect?

Do you get the effect? They say they approve and improve The impoverished lives of the masses But where is the effect? That the vat and hikes Globalization of our economic soul Through cut-throat oligarchs Who fatten on our miseries Is for common good Do you get the effect? How dare we think of the billions? We may imagine the millions Toil for the peanuts And shackled in the nucleus Of ever rising costs Is that the effect? We are starving, silently dying Our funeral everyday But never will we be buried These faces murder with the spirits And mourn with the bereave But now we stop screaming We end up mumbling and grumbling Waiting for God do While they, under our noses Bask on our converted wealth of theirs – J.Ifeme
