The usual narrative is that CEO’s and alphabet employees are seeing the fruits of their success. A job well done is a job well rewarded. The truth is that a job well rewarded is usually funded by your tax dollars, among other things, while those that do the bulk of the work continue to see shrinking pay and benefits. All the bailouts during Bush and Obama, the tax cut during Trump- guess which ones see the benefits? But hey, financing CEO pay with taxpayer money is Capitalism*, so that’s good!

*(or rather, it’s a common result of unregulated Capitalism)

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
