A poem by Bijal Shah
Aggressive practices, misleading information
Lack of transparency, hidden agendas
Premiums beyond market rates
What is the rationale for this anti-social behaviour!
The pursuit of higher profits
I feel cheated, numb, angry
Or wait am I just a fool?
Big bully monopolies vs the people
Where is the government and its anti-competitive policies?
Dear God, give me the courage to speak up.
Do we pay or do we revolt?
Out of principle, I will not pay
They can threaten me with poor credit scores
Justice is justice
I stand strongly by my morals
The pursuit of money at all costs
Is like a growing cancer to society
Robbing them of their right to fair treatment
Diminishing their peace of mind
Slowly chipping away at their mental health
You know how to make a tidy profit
But you cannot tell right from wrong
I hope one day you pay it forward
Maybe then I will forgive you
But only once justice has been served.
