    Your title hinted that the piece would be about the chaos of the election, and you did not disappoint. Dog eat dog, scaping for every scrap, they'll promise us the world, and deliver empty promises. Meanwhile, the needy suffer. Such a potent piece poet, one we should read more than once.

    it's amazing

    how people can live and live good on the backs of starving people

    and feel good about themselves

    yes there has to be a change in this world in favor of the people

    unfortunately i don't see it happening anytime soon

    peace poet

    great piece

    i'm so glad you see it for what it is

    thank you all ...for your reasoned responses. this is just a piece i performed for a Socialist Party function. Im very, very glad some have responded to it, can see it for what it is. most political pieces seem to get over looked here.

    i dont believe in utopias, but anything's gotta be better than this. the gap between the rich and poor grows every second.

    i do see change. i will always look for a better day.
    if not for me, for future generations.
