on the gentrified way

everything you could want

from twelve dollar sandwiches

to eight dollar  cuppa soup

everything you could ask

with the poor and their noses

pressed to the glass

they are simply not in our class

class warfare at its best

this is for the one percent


fuck the rest

this “world class” city

has a definite lack of empathy

their rose colored glasses

just won’t allow them to see

the ongoing  battles of class

its all about occupation

they move you out

to our indignation

there is  sun shine  today

and the sound of gunfire is still

a long way away

if you have the bucks at the Everything Café.
