Let me tell you
What a safety net means
Have you been to the circus
Seen the trapeze artistes perform
What happens when they fall?
The net protects them from injury!
This is something like that
Though the people do not know
That they are more likely to fall
That there is no guarantee
That the net will save them
That we do not care if they survive
That they have nowhere else to go
That there are more people dying to take their place
That history will call this the golden age
Of the country
When growth touched double digits
And there were four billionaires
From our ranks
In the global top ten.
