Economic Miracle

© 2018 Steve Cook

I guess we've witnessed an economic miracle;

Someone's done the ostensibly impossible.

They took an underpopulated planet

Of seven billion willing people

Honestly striving to get by;

A world of ideas in limitless supply

And human and material resources

In such abundance you couldn't

Quantify them if you tried.

They put them all together

And made everything scarce

Except drugs pain and psychiatry.

On a planet run by idiots

I guess anything is possible

Including turning wine into piss

And similar economic miracles.
