Propinquity Iniquity

Each day my father said to me,
Son, in time, all this is yours.
To my own child I say the same.
Ask not, How come all this is ours?
That page is lost from history.
Effect detached from ancient cause.

Castles built to last forever,
ruined monuments to greed -
only sharing out our fortunes
stems the tide of human need -
sovereign states cooperate
if borders need to be controlled -
no gap between the rich and poor
guards long when lives are bought and sold.

A is for Ass

Acme products always win,
depending on the punter's pin -
voting for the name on top
elects the chump who'll be a flop -
read the list as far as first
to hire the cowboy that's the worst -
if you'd like to laze today,
select the alphabetic way -
employ wild chance and start to pray!
