Socialism (a poem)

Socialists

Filthy depraved minds we are,

Daring to see women as equals,

To see race as a tedious thing

to feud about,

To see that liberation

is an all or nothing game.

Wanting to see each child fed,

Each human housed,

Every belly full,

and every need met.

How dare we ever take up arms

to protect ourselves

against the colonial bullies.

How dare we,

Us sex craved drunks

biting roses in between our teeth

as we seduce your now young adult children

into a lifestyle

of militant humanity.

Yes, how dare we,

how dare we even think

such thoughts about justice

or equality

or dignity.

How dare we,

us filthy,

us depraved,

us socialists.
