A long pandemic of capitalism
Infects the world. Credit cards, bitcoin, cash
Are the viruses causing the rash
Of hopes dashed, the often deadly schism
Between abundance and falling wages,
Between the multi-billionaire
And all with more than a fair share of despair:
The contagion of capital rages.
Worker’s lives are made precarious
By profit trumping well-being and health,
Common weal succumbing to private wealth.
While political quacks prescribe various
Palliatives, there’s but one vaccine for all
The world, the working class taking control.
