The uncommon man has title to land

being noble or gentried from birth.

Advantaged, indeed, through faith in the seed,

the uncommon man accrues worth.

The commoner, less deserving I guess,

remainders what predators leave.

He sharecrops survival on land without title

& suckles the Noblesse Oblige.

Trading pottage for sweat in a hovel sublet,

common law thus defies commonweal.

The commoner's lot is what the bettors forgot

to plunder, gerrymander or steal.

Nothing really forsaken, when wanted its taken,

only the crumbs will remain.

Capital need claims harvest and seed.

The rest’s reserved through eminent domain.
