Douglas Polk- A Poem


Tsarist Russia,
birthplace of the vanguard,
of the workers of the world,
a place where the gulf between peasant and nobility,
day and night,
wealth created for one,
while the other slaved with all his might,
the nobility,
the original one percent,
true in every sense of the word,
owning body and soul,
the essence of another,
a hundred years later,
the one percent still exists,
inequality increasing on an exponential rate,
Tsarist Russia,
revived by Putin,
while the American Dream slowly dies,
Obama confused,
serfdom revisited as a way to survive,
the economics of the 21st century.
