Dear Neighbour

An economic unit
far too small to count,
is how they want you,
your household budget
at the mercy
of a larger scheme
to keep you spending
and productive.

Happy with the plan
‘look after Number One’,
is how they want you.
While companies merge
for strength, you repair
your garden fence,
determined to remain
too small to count.
