The 1% War

who are the soldiers of the poor?

shouts the activist

silence screams back

who fights for the rich?

the poor fight

and die for them


when the rich go to war

the poor carry the fight

the soldiers of the rich are many

pawns on an endless board


the poor has no army

only an army of ideals

an army of the mind


ideas are peaceful

history is violent
