plutocracy; tired of it?

by Maria Francesca

poor
live
under
tyranical,
outrageous
conditions;
rich
are
collecting
yachts.

America's
re-wired
economy

yields
overwhelming
underemployment.

tolerate
it -
rest
easy -
deluded

or
fight

it.

Author's Note: if only the wealthy can afford to run for office, are we really a democratic republic or should we just admit that we are a plutocracy?

I do believe you are correct lady. And in those states where those elected are not rich, they are controled by those who are. Regardless of educated we think we are, few of us understand the reality of politics in this country$$$$$$$$$$

I've often thought this of the United States. And those Presidents who don't toe the line and try to change things end up assasinated.

its always better to tell it like it is, as does this ode. I never cared much for yachts but have always held a fondness for wee boats that staked some poor fisherman a livelihood. wee boats sanctify waters, yachts, despoil.
