Socialist: And how the workers will get paid?

Fabulously written! Inspiring yet inspired by our rotten times, I see it on the stage as a short play With the 3 protagonists, Really nailing their lives In their own way With what they say Which is the truth About each one, Dear Mr. Poet, Never better done! Love it! Thank you so much!
