Socialist Sonnet No. 8

Q. Conspiracy


There’s a cabal of Satanists planning

To conquer the world, a secretive sect

Of ballot blaggers. This deep state elect,

A liberal elite bent on unmanning

Upstanding and righteous average Joes

Who think themselves free to be the best pal

Of libertarian capital:

Though capital couldn’t care less, and it shows.

Profit trumps all, whatever it might be:

Rising unemployment and falling wages,

Global warming, famine, while war rages,

Closed borders, migrants left drowning at sea.

While conspiracy remains in season,

People conspire in betrayal of reason.

D. A.
