poem- middle

Posted: August 27, 2014 in Uncategorized

This poem really resonates with me

Shawn L. Bird

For centuries

you were either rich or poor.

You had lots of power or none.

Until the merchant class

developed,they educated their children,

and the middle class

evolved.

Now a minuscule percent of the population

holds the majority of the wealth

and fights to grab

more and more wealth

more and more power.

They fight to destroy

public education

and the health system

with elitist ideas about

who deserves what.

Sharing is better

than hoarding.

Spreading wealth

makes society better for all.

Teach everyone.

Heal everyone.

Crime goes down.

Life improves for everyone.

The feudal system

is futile.

I thought this inspiring story of how a young man with autism made a special bond with a barista showed how differences can be overcome with a little understanding. http://m.lancasteronline.com/lifestyle/aaron-and-anisa-young-man-with-autism-forms-special-bond/article_20a01f66-2941-11e4-9d24-001a4bcf6878.html?mode=jqm#.U_3uOCFsQec.facebook
