The Right To What:


[ dedicated to the spirit of the wall street - and now boston/dewey square - occupation ]



The right to money

The right to what

To scramble

Frantically digging

To be born

Finding oneself

Hemmed in

To spend so much time

Recovering

And dismantling fences

The right to accumulate

Amounts to what

Burdened

Precarious power

What high price

For an empty feeling

The right to money

The right to what

To be separate

Less alike, less together

Sheltered from tragedy

Aloof

And on the go

Busy

And demoralized

The right to what

A snifter

And a headache

The right to run

Amok in costume

The right to think

People are paper

The right to die thinking

What have I been doing

All this time

Letting the lost ones tell me

I'm a have-not
