…anD so it conTinuES.
Accepted onto the team,
She felt part of something whole,
She crossed the bridge every morning,
not knowing of a toll.
Some people live in the 1% margin,
Without averages and common ground,
Not noticing that she tried to squeak,
but never made the slightest sound.
She lost her community when it was taken away,
Forcefully, selfishly, auctioned,
to the businesses, the corporations,
The supposedly “lower income” cautioned.
Get yourself in check before you find yourself as she,
as they, as he, as them, as we.
