Socialist Sonnet No. 66



It is not by force of arms or terror

That this benighted world can be remade,

There’s no infallible elite to aid

This process, nor leader without error.

Reforms have not brought such change by stealth,

Reformers fail, whatever their intent,

Career politicians are mouths for rent

By those rich enough to safeguard their wealth.

All can be transformed through the power of choice,

A new world without money, war and greed,

Commonwealth arranged to satisfy need

And all achieved through the popular voice.

World without borders, no national schism:

True democrats demand socialism.
