The Upper Crust

The upper crust
Take the money from the people
And distribute among themselves
They call it ‘consultancy fees’.

The upper crust
Take the money from the people
And distribute it among themselves
And call it ‘legal fees’.

The upper crust
Take the money from the people
And distribute it among themselves
They call it their entitlement
Because they are better than us
Because they know  more than the rest of us
and they do.

They know how to take money from the people
And distribute it among themselves.
