The U$ has
Too many yachts
Not enough beds
Too many tanks
Not enough masks
No supply
All demand

Too many loopholes
Not enough homes
Too many billionaires
Not enough ventilators
Too much private sector
Public infrastructure
To speak of
Too many tax cuts
Not enough gloves
Far too much cover up
The richest nation on earth
Just as it was designed to be

Production line
Of war
