austerity measures by Ali Znaidi

no budget to inject life into projects
and feed new workers
new babies             new immigrants                              new asylum seekers
additional expenditures        additional costs                 the budget is weary
swollen pockets           swollen bellies                            swollen red cheeks
empty pockets              empty bellies                              99%  are in the red
red carpets                                                                                    ragged rags
scissors                                                                                fragments of rags
even breath is inhaled                              to the rhythm of austerity measures
