Rose colored life.
benign in its environment,
perfectly formed by nature.
The rose is tranquil in its habitat 
 
Then banker men shook hands
with your duly elected government man. 
The rose is at war over money.
 
War victims are shuffling along,
Their rose wilted and care worn. 
Only part of the rose they can own 
 is the petal found lying forlorn upon the ground. 
 
Rose hued life rent asunder.
When banker man declared
We, the banks have gone under.
 
Government man said to banker man
It’s okay, I’ll print you some
rose-colored money.
 
Perfectly groomed at great expense
the  rose is worn in the banker's lapel. 
The thorns lend a notion of grim charm.
We, the workers know the money rose
has caused nothing but harm..
