Public Debt by Gary Beck

The sons and daughters

of the oligarchs

should resurrect

democracy,

stolen by their parents

for personal gain,

exercise of power,

excessive indulgence,

showering their offspring

with rampant privilege

arbitrarily denied

to most of the people,

whose desperate needs

could surely be eased

if intelligent children

recognize the faults

of selfish parents

forgetting obligations

to the nation.
