Class Law – Written Thursday 21st April 2022 (Aged 47)

Class Law

people have fallen apart
workers on strike
factories will not start
hands up,
there is no more
people are broken
from obeying class law
i look on,
as the person broken first
i hear voices
and accents hurt
there is a chill wind
at the factory gate
the workers not in
or always late
people have fallen apart
much of them in bits
looking at societal systems
and where they might fit
spare parts,
in some store,
or on some shelf
if it is not me,
then it is everybody else
factories no longer produce
and people fall apart
what is the market,
what is the answer,
people have fallen apart
