Very Convenient by Mark Tucker

the world is one
filthy and violent

to be respectable,
controlled and orderly

while humiliating
those who are less
favoured and fortunate

labelled as failures,
evil and stupid
for not winning the game

that the house ultimately wins
cannot lose
when inheriting rules

that effectively weigh the coin
toward heads
promised lands

the minority view
as possessing and owning
by merit

while everyone else
begs for work
buys new shoes

to walk to the club ā€“
get no-worries-drunk ā€“
to get screwed
