WHERE THE WEALTHY WINS

I thought we’ve seen a leveller …in the fragility of life I thought we’ve smelt the disgust …in vile classicism and rots I thought compassion has become a passion I thought love has been turned live …like hot coals in a winter chimney Were my thoughts born in deceptive cots?
