We the Sheeple

The conquered delight in reflected greatness
And know nothing of being oppressed.

We learn to shun political debate
Nervous to glimpse shackles & muzzles.

Dwelling on inanities
We huddle in shadows of peace.

Rich fertile Commonwealth stripped,
Great Leaders lecture the desperate & homeless.

We're weaned on austerity
As Banks & Military cop our affluence.

Herded to overvalued housing
Our assets were stripped, our futures held ransom.

Yet misled Fools
Still heel to the same advisers.

Mired in negative worth
We're lauded & fleeced repeatedly.
