The Prey

The rich prey on the poor with ease,

Their wealth built on the poor's unease.

Field and mind, they toil in vain,

Subjected to the rich's gain.

The rich get richer, the poor get poor,

A cycle that's hard to ignore.

The poor work hard, day and night,

But their efforts never see the light.

The rich build mansions, yachts, and planes,

Leaving the poor to struggle in chains.

Their lives are a constant battle,

With the rich always in the saddle.

The poor are left with no resource,

While the rich take without remorse.

For as long as this cycle endures,

The poor will remain the rich's subjects.
