Fortunate Amateurs

They are the ‘saviours’ of the economy
Who carefully obliterate what is left of it

They are the ‘helpers’ of the poor
Who see them as playthings

They say they see no evil
Yet are the cause of corruption

They claim to be innocent and pure
Yet feast on death and suffering

They say ‘We didn’t do it!’
Yet the foul odour of lies seeps from their every opening

They claim they love the masses
Yet are nauseated by their sight

They claim to be our well-deserving leaders
Yet are fortunate amateurs who win by pity or perversion
