La Budget Guillotine!

Be prepared, ye mortals!
for old though renewed sacrifices
dreams, desires, hopes, plans,
cuts,
hurts,
burns,
from the old man of hundred and ten
to the young kids under ten
all red wine
on the shrine
of la budget guillotine!

    The poem speaks so well the existing situation... again with a solid and strong message. Deep observation! ! ! Dickens 'A Tale of Two Cities' immediately came to my mind when i read the title. You have skillfully used Guillotine here. Very innovative and impressive! ! ! The whole scene came to my mind after reading this well crafted work. Well done! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
