Socialist Sonnet No. 71



There is always a need to modernise,

Old ways of working are superseded,

Without real change progress is impeded;

It’s in novel thinking the future lies.

Technology advances to the point

Of labour not being so laborious,

Could work even become glorious

And not something that puts life out of joint?

Who would resist choosing a better way

Once the consensus has been apprized

That benefits commonly realised

Resolve issues of poverty and pay?

But for now, workers are forced to dispute

Changes capital wants to institute.
