Bad Poetry: Dignity (Updated with the Actual Poem)

Today's NaPoWriMo prompt suggests a Sunday Post, so let's swap with the prompts suggested for the weekend and consider Dignity. 

The dignity of self-determination
must always be the first consideration
in any plan we think's for others' profit.
"Just tell them to do this or that"? Come off it!
"Use taxes to provide more benefit"?
Has every single one requested it?
"If richer people moved here, more tax money
Would pay for services..." Not even funny!
If public benefactor you would be,
You may go first, inviting "Follow me,"
But never tell another what to do:
What's best for them, they know more of than you.
