The Leisure Class

We live today in a country where we now have two leisure classes, those who are very rich and those who are very poor. The very rich leisure class is explainable; the very poor leisure class, who, without working, exist on welfare, food stamps, child support and other government subsidies, is explainable only as a government enterprise to create a beholden class of voters who understand their continued leisure depends on voting Democrat. It is truly said that at each end of the social scale is a leisure class


At top end of the social class

The leisured many get

To spend their lives flat on their ass

And live off others’ sweat

The poorest on the social scale

As well live lives of ease

Demanding goodies without fail

And never saying please
