I want to tear it down

I want to tear it down
free trade, a brick around
our factory's neck, this town's
gray smolder, evokes, 
the closed factory smoke
A Crumbling horoscope
once paid it's worker's, soaked
in quiet desperation.
We are it's rusty antiques
sinking ships on outsourced seas
a swollen, bailout casualty
a fallow field, a dustbowl breeze
While children sew our sneakers
In bananna sweatshops, cheaper
hands can make, children's fate
wont matter, they'll dig deeper.

    I agree, the answer is not in the complexity of the Harlot economics. Sincerely, Moses

    Minimalist. :-) All my poems aren't all as short as that. I've been messing around with a form I just learned. Yes, I know...very simple. Fun, though. DG
