The Headache of Systems

Welfare
Child Support
Disability
Social Security
You are a number among many
You give up your privacy
Your pride
Your individualism
For the help you need
You play the game of papers
You play the game of luck
All to try and climb the societies ladder
The Society that looks down at you
The Systems that hold you
The Economy that needs you to stay
At the bottom.

    This one fits nicely with my poem today’just one more form…’ something about ‘great minds…’ found your poem quite poignant.
