Who is winning?

Who is winning?
I hear that term often.
They’re winning!
I ask who?
Big Pharma!
Filled of employees
getting old
they’re wrinkling.
Our politicians!
They’re getting old
wrinkly skin
they’re aging.
The big CEOs!
They’re getting old
they’re wrinkling.
They’re getting old
they’re wrinkling
bodies enlarging
minds are loosing
all their thoughts slipping.
I ask who is winning?
The influencers!
Always struggling for likes
for one more laugh
enslaved by their homes
by their pretty places
botox faces.
Who is winning?
The poor
living out of their cars
parked outside
the house that once was theirs.
The middle class
exchanging pay checks
for goods
piled high,
their big break Hoarders
as others watch in disgust
because they’re not winning.
Your not winning
I’m not winning
they’re not winning
we’re all losers.
Change takes thoughts
and our minds are complacent
our thoughts checked out
and we’ve just carried on.
Moved by the past
sitting down
filling our heads
of history
and forgetting the now
it’s up to us
rather we’ll stay losers
trying to claim others the winner.
Allowing ourselves
to flake on the credit.
I’m sorry…
I know you don’t
want to hear it
this shit
it belongs to all of us.
There is no adult innocent left
it’s my fault
your fault
their fault
his, her, them, they
it’s all of us.

Thanks for reading.
