The Modern and the Historical

Modern Life, Historic Issues

Frustration is the mantra of the nation,

Subjugation the tale through the ages.

Veiled behind the lies of politicians

But so obviously boasted in education’s pages.

It’s sickening the prospects of our kindred,

Depressed and lost amidst a system that hinders

Many’s ability to progress due to colour

And for others it’s drugs or solitary over worked mothers.

Sat on Central lane to work,

Immersed in Rat Race Sin with perks

That may lead to Glory if not shirked

But for so many the claustrophobia sends them bezerk!

Yet such is the method of capitalism,

A construct for humans to exist within

In attempt of increasing our share

Of what the State’s rulers dictate is fair.
