we lessen
the pain

mitigate
our misery

deal
with devils
whom have no
doubt
as to the ownership
of our souls

they smile

pat us
upon the
shoulders

congratulate
our business
acumen

we are
their gullible
children

being cheated
of our
monthly allowances
on technicalities

and when
they collect
that final
payment

their grins
grow
ever larger

as they
wave their hands
over that next
play pretty

the next
necessity
that we
cannot
afford

they will
offer us yet
another financial
favor

we are
so lucky
that they
are running
the show

they do
love us
so
