In the town of
Front Royal where
I live I am a socialist.

I live there with
my socialist wife
and my socialist daughter
and my socialist son.

We think socialist
thoughts like “water,
wind, sun, moon, earth
belong to us all”
and “privatize this.”

Just like we did
when we lived
in the fatherland.

  1. I found this after entering socialism as a tag. Very happy that I did. I look forward to more of your posts. I’ve been “accused” of being a socialist. It’s not at all fashionable in the UK these days – I’ve never been a fashionista or a fascist 🙂

      ah, thanks, Silvertonguedpoetess! Sorry that the fashions in the UK are more on the severe side lately. Maybe one day things will start turning around over there and here as well.
