The non elites _ perplexed what’s best for them,
Whatever that may be must trickle down.
Their spot within the food chain’s very low,
Elites decide to what they will be bound.
Perhaps the trickle down that might be best …
is the kind that dribbles down from government?
Forego the growth? Redistribute what is there?
per rules to which you offer your consent?
As non elites continue their debate,
they find two paths competing for their vote.
An economy that grows will trickle down.
Does such growth, work best, to float all boats?
With growth perhaps there is a lot more stuff,
more people work, earn slices of the pie.
And it means of course the pie is getting larger …
with increased demand well balanced by supply?
If you look for dribble down from state elites
you must adhere to rules and regs they set.
What happens if the pie no longer grows?
Well once it’s gone there’s no more you will get.
Each rule prevents your movement up the chain,
and preferences you hold will be gone too.
Dribble down from government works best,
when freedom’s lost and gone without a clue.
