Money and Revolution

Originally, I put this together for Andrea and Ina’s poetry contest entitled: Money. I thought it was too cynical, so I cancelled my participation. Then, I linked it to the Sunday Scribblings prompt of Revolution 🙂 cynical as it is.


That freedom is a matter of choice
would be a long-chewed-over lie
that all religions use
to dull our edge
and lull our spirit
away from revolution. 

That revolution is a fight for freedom
is simply an illusion,
that leaders use
to lead the poor to believe
there will be 


equality and freedom 

for all.
