The anchor’s in their words.
You held tightly to the rope-
a lifebelt you had hoped, but no safe haven bespoke.
You, the masses, their scapegoat.
They don’t care for your demise.
It’s the system, it’s their fame.
Your toil crowns their game.
The ones you smile and wave,
now aspersions on their names-
it’s the order,
take your number,
God is watching, but in vain.
