Sonnet 51 – Barbarians at the Gate
The time has come, the Walrus said, to speak,
And look away from Ipads and MacBooks,
To smell our World, which has started to reek.
The Knights and Bishops lost all to the Rooks.
They lied and cheated to get our money,
And are working now to usurp our rights.
We can’t escape this by being funny,
Our freedoms will die if we lose these fights.
Remember, there is more to Life than sex,
And stop being a slave to easy debt.
Don’t doubt that they’ve already stacked the decks,
And think they’ve already covered each bet.
E Pluribus Unum: from many, one.
All people united or we are done.
