the Pig won again by Mark James Andrews

democracy is hard
democracy is ugly
in amerika
the amerika that wallows
in ignorance
in racism
in sexism
in the one religion
in gun love
ah, ignorance
personified in the heartland
with voters voting
against their own needs
against their own interests
a sick throat cutting
self-inflicted
& capitalism?
it’s a greedy Pig
that’s got to be fed
& the Pig knows
the fear buttons to push
to keep getting fed
in the Kingdom of Fear
the Pig won again
simple.
