1050 - Class Warfare


Mid-week Motif: War & Peace


Class Warfare

Wars are just a rich man’s game
And the stakes are rather high.
But the odds are stacked against the poor:
It’s not the rich that die.

◊◊◊

Peace is what the public want;
To thrive and love and chat,
To enjoy the world in every way—
But where’s the cash in that?
