EPIA**

30 seconds
sound bites
regurgitated sawdust waxed with
pig fat
fact/a majority of Top hats fight
to keep the brother
hood down
alleyways trend
site waste
avoiding slants of sun/filters
down
the rats racing
down/uptown
or is it running up, downtown
aggressive footsteps, fingers
pound glass taps, is it up or
down, is it up or down
this flight of steps
stop, she says
mama’s got more stamps
for our daily bread
if we promise it
our last supper.

(sidebar: written while reading “The Lie Factory” in Sept. 24’s The New Yorker re: the creation of the political machine. EPIC = End Poverty in California – a slogan/platform created by author, Upton Sinclair, when he ran as a Dem in a then all Republican CA.)

**End Poverty in America

    We the 99% are suppressed by the megacorps and the megabanks and the exploitation sure makes that Karl Marx critique make sense to me. Not that I advocate a communist economy, but favor a capitalist system that is not rigged and that is monitored by both government(ala Theodore Roosevelt) and the worker empowerment advocated by unions. “All power to the workers” is a theme I find attractive.
