The Pyramid

§

Do you cherish the perishable?

The wounded and the comparable

The destruction,

The corruption

The social destroyer

Or the employer?

To the unemployed

The deployed

The myriad

Period.

    A very interesting poem that captures how a lot of people feel. While I think that capitalism is a lot better than many other forms of social and political organization, I do have to scratch my head when I think about the pyramid system. In many ways, it just doesn’t make sense, but we’re all a part of it, somewhere.
    Anyway, check out this great poem (which exercises a great vocabulary, I should add) and it may turn some wheels in your head as it did in mine.
    Too bad there wasn’t a simple way to ‘fix’ all of this, without plunging ourselves into chaos.

    Wow, I love this. The image left me with such a visceral reaction and the poem really encompassed that. I love the rhyme and meter to it too. Sobering but powerful stuff!

    Wow, wonderful timing with this gorgeous graphic, Jennifer. My son & I were discussing ‘the state of affairs’ & I described the feelings of the people in the French Revolution with their backs & souls broken — “eat cake when they had no bread”. This pyramid portrays all too well the feelings of too many generations in too many countries now. And a special thank-you for the ‘Like’ on my Dawne Thoughts post — I can’t express how much I appreciate your kindness. 😉
