Inhospitable
Brooks Bradbury

if we put down the double latte
move away from our little screens
try to become human again
do we remember what it means

generous employers decades ago
provided commendable steady work
benefits, pensions and raises were earned
without armed workers going berserk

honorable employees decades ago
gave a lifetime of blood and sweat
they earned each precious benefit
the ones they no longer get

the social contract fractured
when money became the goal
now we see where it’s all leading
and we face the social toll

we’re all out on the run today
searching for what it all means
thank god for our friends and family
for lattes and little screens
