Thank you, LP, for the thoughtful response and for allowing me to mess up your skepticism.
This one was one of many things I see in my head, and more often than not they evaporate before the words finish forming. This piece is where the words unbidden tried to protray the vision in my mind of the middle class workers, lowest tier for corporations, trying to get the CEOs attention and failing, being too low for such action, weighed down with doubts and bills. There, where they live and work, there is no real color except on bright media banners which proclaim messages tailored for the masses, meaning less then nothing. The tone is simple: bleak despair.
