From Dickensian to dystopian; Or the realities of the trickle-down economy. (Not a really a rant, just a raise of an eyebrow and a roll of the eyes.)

Tough Times For Tiny Tim,

What a cruel and tragic tale the floor supervisor had to tell;
There’ll be no overtime in this sweatshop for quite a spell;
Poor Bob Cratchit choked back the tears and his face fell,
Back to breadcrusts and gruel for Tiny Tim and Little Nell.

    Humbug? Too Rich For Me.

    Yep, its back to penny pinching,
    Sadly humbugs are an expensive treat,
    The old belt will need re-cinching
    With what the good Company chooses to mete.

    Thanks for the reply in kind, and touche!
