Wednesday

on Wednesday will the empire i live in
still be only 5% of the world’s population
but hold 25% of it’s prisoners?

“yes”

on Wednesday will the empire i live in still
house one in every 30 of its citizens in incarceration 
or be constantly watching them, 
through probation/parole? 

“yes”

on Wednesday will the empire i live in still 
hold over 12 million unemployed citizens suffering
in its belly?

“yes”

on Wednesday will the empire i live in still
refuse to give its citizens universal healthcare?

“yes”

on Wednesday will the empire i live in still 
refuse to end its reliance on oil, denying 
that there are obvious green solutions
that could be very easily utilized to 
repair its crippled economy that simultaneously 
is destroying the world environment?

“yes”

on Wednesday will the empire i live in still
be masquerading the world over as its sole 
policeman, using every toy in its arsenal to 
beat other countries into submission, while at the
same time suffocating its own citizens by
depriving them of funds that could help them
survive the many problems here at home,
rather than giving all our money to the 
military?

“yes”

on Wednesday will the fat cats on wall st. still be
stealing it all away (business as usual)?

“yes”

just checking.
