a Neo-SocialistRealist poem by Wolf Larsen
They invented the atomic bomb
They tested their new weapon of mass destruction on the people of Hiroshima & Nagasaki
They escalated the war in Vietnam
They enslaved the black people
They smash unions
They steal pensions
They don't pay taxes, instead they put all their money in offshore bank accounts
When they're in trouble they get government bailouts, when you're in trouble you get nothing
They get the best medical care in the world, while others skip on medical care because they can't afford the copayments
They're taking over our inner cities and pushing us out in a wave of gentrification
Their banks are stealing our homes in an orgy of foreclosures from sea to shining sea
Their cops attack protesters on the street with pepper spray & clubs
Their cops shot minority youth in the back
Their prisons are overflowing with people incarcerated because of drugs
They eat caviar & drink champagne while millions of American children grow up in poverty
They have the nerve to call the unemployed "lazy", when in fact they are the ones who ruined the economy & caused massive unemployment
They've overthrown democratically-elected governments throughout the world and aided dictators like Pinochet, Batista, & the Shaw of Iran
They give bullets & armaments to right-wing death squads throughout Latin America
They spend billions on war & exotic new weapons of mass destruction while the country falls to pieces
They are Democrat, Republican, Libertarian – it does not matter. They used to be all white men, but now some of them are black, and some of them are women – it still does not matter
They are preparing to make a war of terror against us, they just gave the military the right to detain us indefinitely without a trial
The same drones that they use against the Afghanistanis & Pakistanis will be used against us one day
You'll wake up one day and there will be government drones flying over you in Chicago, LA, New York City, Atlanta, etc.
