Riffing on comments that the only way to get folks off welfare is to make working pay.
Oh how I love supply and demand
Although it can be hard to understand —
Workers can’t work unless some invest,
Not investing is a self-sufficiency test —
We all fall like hourglass sand.
With a flip of a hand,
We tumble and land,
In the lap of our pest.
I love supply and demand!
Greed comes in all brands
And pulls at all hands,
Never takes a rest,
Battles for what’s best
Through the law of the land —
Supply and demand.
