Capital Gains By Christine Swiderski

Capital Gains


Accounting for hours of hard labor

years of sweat and tears

some believe what I gained

Is privileged not earned

Within the system of opinion

Those who shake the change

speak the loudest

Crying out privileged corruption

Leaders of equality

Tip the scales for power

From the Capital giving

Only to those who give to them

I hold to my Liberty

Hearing jingle jangle of corruption

Believing in my work ethic

Not in political ethic

which never held a job

Nor wanted for anything

Except more from me
