Celebrate! We Live In A Utopia! - Poem by A.j. Binash

I quiver
At the humble touch of a beggar
I prefer
The crusted fingers
With black dirt
On the nail line
(mascara for the finger)
That which the rich exploit
(tongue and cheek sales pitches)
Results in …
Selling exploitations back to us
"It's all fashion baby! "
It's not a form of protest
To buy spray paint at Wall-Mart
And use it to advertise your ego
On the buildings
Of hard-earning workers
It's not a form of protest
To explain revolution
Over a meal of food stamps and caviar
Rebellion is independence
A place in the suburbs
With a white picket fence
That keeps the beggars away
Living on a dull grass plain
Betty White
Larry Flynt
As your neighbors
In the morning
You wonder if the butter knife you use
To cut your children's PB&J sandwiches
Into little triangles
Would be better used
For suicide
