The Emperor's Cloths, By Brian37

The Emperor's Cloths, By Brian37

He shouts orders
As immortality
Clean that dish
Scrub that floor

But what lines
His pockets
Is my labor

Top or bottom
None will dwell
On their deathbeds
Fixated on wealth

Class is a prism
Often to divide
Missing last breaths
None will survive

I am this
I am that
I have this
I have that

So what?
Death is it for all
Equality is acceptance
Of this fact.

"We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and nonbelievers."Obama
