Contrived Convictions Shelter Merchants of Avarice

Day#9 #LexPoMo Poetry challenge

Contrived convictions
shelter merchants of avarice
veil of deception

Masters of the house
use golden pens to craft laws
inked from the bank vaults

Corrupt, complicit
donkeys dance with elephants
a circus of wealth

Blind loyalty in
capitalist conditions
creates the struggle

Proletariat,
reject the charms of donkeys
pets of the elite

Proletariat,
defy hateful elephants
leader of bigots

Disband opulence
“seize the means of production”
revolt against greed
