The Prophets

Promising power and the right for work to the proletariat
Who knew then or now how wrong or right?

Without competition they become lazy,
while the race for dominance makes greedy.

Both solutions dishonest and tired. In Family Europe
Inequality is masterminded to serve  - the markets.

The safe-keeper banks falling apart with fatal irony:
Humans need Charity to improve the balance sheets, but who needs money?

House them in boxes and catapult the debris into space
let the two geniuses twist and turn in their grave.
