Socialist Sonnet No. 90

Capital Gains?


The great dictator, being dictated to

By his own inner voice and ambition,

Declares his is a patriotic mission,

Insists what’s obviously a lie is true;

Dismisses any humane intrusions.

All those who stand hand on heart and salute

The flag, and do nothing to refute,

At least to themselves, such dire delusions,

Are as prisoners locking their own cell doors.

Such a loss leader, who cannot be wrong

Will slaughter others and his own young

By conducting his self-justified wars.

From his seat of power, rules without pity,

Isolated in his capital city.
