How To End Poverty

shitty dollar

I go drifting among the classes, free and

Undiscriminating as a dollar or

A few squares of toilet paper

“You can’t do that forever,” those

Assholes where money comes from and

Where it ends up, say

“Choose!” they urge passively

Aggressive as a gang rape.

It’s by force I wipe one and

The rest remain shit-covered.

    Wow! Step aside Bernie, watch out capitalism, we’re gonna take you down!

    Seriously, couldn’t agree more. Not just on moral grounds, but practical ones. Unrestricted private wealth getting begets growing inequality for the overwhelming majority, and the wealth getters think the masses are going to sit still for this for, what, for-ever? (Channelling Karl). But, muzzle not the ox that treads the grain, also a good guideline…
