Whether called ‘Fulsom’s Folly’
or ‘Carnagie’s intellectual breadline’,
the industrious art of wealth
is anathema to workers
in dire penury.
Like Icarus, Branson takes the skies
carting five employees in his machine flight.
The brotherhood of wealth praises him!
The working-class stiffs propose a plug
to pillage these people of plenty,
but did Icarus’s father join in escape?
What did his son make of the wings?
Let’s choose wisely that we do not drown.
