Inheritance Tax

Social disintegration
Hooded men hellbent
on annihilation

Rising prices
Making ends meet
with limited devices

Choose warmth
or choose to eat

Future seems bleak
It shall be inherited
by the meek

A crumbling empire
Civil unrest will light
a fire

Rioters and looters
Masked sharp shooters

Increasing violence
Boarded up with silence

Disaster everywhere
High powers don't
really care

All we seek is peace
We - the meek.
