Ignorant views about the poor


People spread lies that they’ve been fed

Put it on social media

Making out the poorest have it easy

In a world that lacks any equality.

Life ain’t easy gor the poorest

Every day they scrimp and scape

Just to survive and make ends meet

Just to put shoes on their kids feet

Then they’re critisized for the slightest luxury

That may happen to come their way

Or because they saved so hard

But they’re subject to being beaten up everyday

In the press, on the tv, on the internet

The better off keep pointing at them

As though they’re the pro lem for being poor

God forbid they should Wang or ask for more

Ignorant opinions that don’t mean shit

You have absurd views but please keep them quiet

You seem far more intelligent when you’re silent.
