Dreaming of my government check [NaPoWriMo #19]

Dreaming of my government check

Rich people like to tell us
we live too extravagantly
“Why do you have a phone
and the internet
and clothes?
You should live like a Victorian urchin.”

We like to tell rich people
they are living too extravagantly
“You don’t need that many houses
yachts
private planes
when people can’t afford insulin.”

Then there are the poor people
who defend the rich people:
the antelopes who defend the lion,
thinking this takes them off the menu
