Monopoly

The die are rolled everyday
In this game of life we play
Collect 200 or miss a go
Go to jail with the next throw

Politicians play us like pieces on a board
Whilst they live it up as wealthy lords
Collecting taxes as they move
It’s us this game that’ll lose

‘Tis the way of things in a game
Where cheats and the lucky do reign
Playing high stakes with our lives
It’s no wonder the monopolize

Hopefully a player will come along
And do what needs to be done
Playing to win with every roll
Of the dice to save our souls
