“Globalisation is what makes the world go round”
this chap in a suit told me as I sat on the ground.
Why then are billions starving?” I replied.
“Come now it’s not that bad” and then, in an aside
he suggested, “They are not starving, they’re waiting.
Waiting for wealth to slowly trickle down to them.
As the rich get richer they they’ll create jobs and then
and then we’ll all live happily ever after.”
