Eat the Rich

Eat the Rich

A Poem by Blind Pathos
"

Hunger makes a better coach than history makes a teacher.

"

 

Oh how the rich and vain

Spin it to the poor and plain

Gated castles just beyond view

Nests of sanctuary for the few

 

Every day they leave for work

Driving past in high comfort

Thinking about stock perks

Working on reports

 

Wage slaves on the street

With signs that say “Eat”

Class struggle is not just

Seats all up back of the bus

 

Riots can’t get the point across

It takes a cost of personal loss

Lacking vision and wine for courage

They will “Eat” the Rich
