this shit ain't good
bear

The economy I mean.
 1
We're in a bad spot.
 2
 
 
Watch the news,
 3
I dare you.
 4
You'll be seeing CEO's
 5
arguing about their fuck up's
 6
and how they owe people money.
 7
 
 
When workers are
 8
losing their hard earned wealth
 9
with the sweat of their fathers
 10
to achieve their evident goals,
 11
 
 
And I'm staring at
 12
a grim gaunlet of
 13
grinding gears with
 14
the other kids who are
 15
finally staind on
 16
their own two feet.

this poem ain't good.  sorry.

staind?  That is no word I can find.  What do you mean by it?  This seems very disjointed to me.  Not clear about lines 10-11.

The poem doesn't seem strong enough to show a worldwide financial meltdown, in my opinion.

Took me back to age 12/13, when I was freaking out - a nice free-floating fear - about Iran and Iraq warring as they were.  I was terrified of 'nuclear' destruction, death itself, and that somehow the whole WORLD would become involved.  I asked my Dad what would happen if a nuclear bomb went off, and he replied 'stand up on a table, pull down your pants, grab your ankles, and kiss your arse goodbye'.

It would have been nice if Staind were around in my time, but It's Been a While :)
