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
