Capitalism, poetry, Socialism



The body is

a hungry thing

and it eats whatever

It can reach

It feeds upon the largesse

of the land

And its people

The body has an appetite

That cannot be satiated

So it consumes and

Hoovers up

The bounty of the world

It grows strong as the people


The body has no remorse

Not an ounce of humanity

It reaches out for all it wants

And munches greedily

It packs on the pounds

As the world grows skeletal

The body is a glutton and a fiend

It gobbles up societies and

Chews them up

Like a cow with its cud

The body masticates

And annihilates

And digests

And eliminates indiscriminately

Across the face of mankind
