If hope were not helpless

I am tempted to disbelieve the mantra of our founding fathers

etched at the base of Lady Freedom,

“give us your tired, weak, and huddled masses yearning to break free.”


The throne we resisted usurped by corporate greed,

shackling 9′ to 5′ servitude for huddled masses in cubicles.

A faceless stranger has taken the royal throne.
