Not for the People

I wish your rule brevity
For it is grossly abused
Incongruent with the starving
Polish for your bombastic pride
Costly to the poor
And shall you too retreat
When the coffers come empty
To the cushion you ferret
At every opportunity
Unbound by conscience
Or sworn duty
To those that put you in
