27 May 2017 – The Usual Losers
The usual losers – and that won’t change.
Wannabes ante-up, glad of the game,
relieved to be rid of their morals, exchanged
for lottery chances they’ll never claim.
They could’ve chosen to jam up the gears,
chosen defiance of each petty czar,
chosen new voices – to them lent their ears,
but never bothered, and so – here we are!
