Once again millions of Americans
will buy into the legend of Hood Robin –
believe it perfectly legitimate
to enrich the already wealthy
by robbing those who can least afford it.
Not only am I in favour of
separation of church and state
I’m in favour of separation
of state and corporation…
or is that redundant?
Sister systems of enslavement
that get off tax-free.
Millions of dollars were spent
since the end of WWII
so that you would react to the word socialism
as if it referred to something
more dangerous than dynamite…
so forget that word and just remember
how utterly anti-social capitalism is –
how deaf to human suffering
how blind to ecological destruction.
