That Virus – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon




“The very design of neoliberal principles is a direct attack on democracy.”  Noam Chomsky


That Virus

that virus which has destroyed
all that was collective and community
has diminished the courage of politicians
and elevated the narrow-minded profiteers
who have washed in the blood of our lives
and feasted on the carcass of hope,
a despicable breed of thugs.
