United Wealth Against Villianaire-ism

I call upon all
intelligent people
of a certain means

We need you to
come to the
aid of the nation.

There lurk among you
a small but powerful
few

who have in mind
the end of our country
our union
our home

who fill our
nation
with naught but despair

and fear

fear of joblessness
illness
old age
fire
crime
loss
eternal damnation
the sins (see subcategories) of others

also

no help
from anyone
good luck, Bud
yer on yer own.

something's gonna
blow

but a bought and
paid for
media
spins
press release
reality
funded by
the Villianaires.

Who capture commons

by downplaying
the value
of them
first

typical
hostile
takeover
tactic

They look upon
a great vat of money
created by
our forefathers
(and our own payroll tax payments)
and talk it cheap

They want us
poor shmoos
to just say
"We'll never see it in our generation, anyway"
"It's a Ponzi scheme. A monstrous lie"
"OK, abolish it and put the money in the market."

But back to you
dear citizen of means

I know this isn't you.
I don't believe their lies about you

I know you are better
than that

You are not all about money
You care

You are not so bad at business
that you can't handle the risks
that the democratic
form of government
entails

Democracy doesn't scare you

They say you will only create jobs
if you get more money

But you are not extortionists
You wouldn't hold the country hostage
for a few more bucks
you're bigger than that

I know you will provide jobs
when the economy provides customers

I'm keeping the faith

But I am here
to say
only you can fight
the Villianaires
You are the only ones
who can.

You are the closest thing we have
to
super heroes,
and we need some now

These Villianaires
these creepy few
who pretend to be you
the way Al Qaida
pretends to be Muslim
they are ruining everything for you

Your peaceful world
your children's lives
your legacy
your fortune

Gentle wealth
Unite today

By saving us,
truly,
you will be saving
yourselves
