More Miserables

Not everyone who steals is Jean Valjean,
With starving mouths at home to feed that day;
Some want to dry their hair, or watch a film,
Or hear an album, but don’t want to pay.

I don’t think ideology does this.
Whatever class, it’s more how people feel;
Some people would not, will not ever pay
For anything that they can merely
Steal

One thought on “More Miserables”

  1. Why should they? The rest of us pay for them. Until we’re bankrupt and empty in all ways.
