Stepping on and Stepping up


“A color photo in black and white.
A stepped on paper looks like a knight.
Millionaire politicians smile and recite
the gospel of maintaining money’s right
to take from the many for a few parasites.
Bullshit reaches another record height
parallel with increases in poverty and fright.
Calling this democracy is not so bright.
The struggle for survival has surprises in sight.
The stepped on everywhere are stepping up to fight.”
Dartwill Aquila


Judging by the media coverage, one would never suspect that the United States is a country where, according to a July 2013 report by the Associated Press, “Four out of five US adults struggle with joblessness, near-poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives.”
