A Sad Reality: Democracy Is a Mockery in America

                                       Good Day World!

Today's poem is about Democracy. We live in a Republic. Our society isn't a Democracy, nor do we practice it's basic tenets. 

The divide between rich and poor grows wider every generation.

is a fantasy
a mythology
a novelty
for a minority
victim of bureaucracy
unable to see
the conspiracy
by the autocracy
whose baloney
is so phony
claiming equality
but really
a rich man's ideology
is all they ever see
a political economy
not meant to be
a reflection of their reality
a policy
of hypocrisy
crippling democracy
under a corporatocracy
run by the wealthy
who can only see
the color of money

Time for me to walk on down the road...
