plunder to pay for it all

once, when the Roman Emperor and Senators
wanted to buy off the people with bread and circuses
they just sent out their legions to conquer and plunder
to take the money needed to build a coliseum or provide services

now, our leaders just tax and spend and print more money
and when that still isn’t enough money to pay for it all
they borrow and plunder from our own children’s future
which I fear can only lead to our society’s ultimate downfall

    I don’t understand how you could ever come to that conclusion. 😉

    A nice comparison with the Romans. Scares the hell out of me.

      Thanks. Scares me too, especially when I think about my grandchildren.
