Comfort Food (10a)

COMFORT FOOD

Eight folk own
Half of the globe’s wealth*
They’re all men
(Mais bien sûr)
As boys loved Monopoly
And never grew up

~~~~~~~~~~~

*A recent report by Oxfam International highlights the dramatic rise in income equality by noting that the combined wealth of the world’s top 8 individual billionaires is more than the lower half of the world’s population, some 3.6 billion people. The intention of the report was to bring awareness to the unfairness and injustice inherent in our global economic system.

Just 8 Men Own Same Wealth As Half The World.
