so others may dine with fine wine…

so others can dine with fine wine

aged hands
and
though
the shackles
have been
removed
slavery’s chains
of poverty
still remain
freedom
continues
to be offered
on
the installment plan
with
the occasional
one-night stand
with libertas
as
payment
for
services rendered
corporeal freedom
relegated
to words
of
hope
indicating
these things
take
time
but
what really
takes time
is
how long
it takes
pontius pilate societies
to
wash
the innocent blood
of the oppressed
from their hands
