“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”
-– B. Lester

Poem for Martin Luther King Day

by Sherwood Ross


Rise up! Rise up, Americans!
Too long have you delayed!
While imperial-minded presidents
Their cruel wars have made.

The hard-earned coin for which you toil
They waste on wars on foreign soil,
The liberties you enjoyed of late
They club to death in the police state. ...

Rise up! Rise up, Americans!
Take peace into the street!
Only the Pentagon gains from war
For the rest of us it's defeat.

MLK denounced the war in Viet Nam
As he would the war in Afghanistan
As King stood up to racism
Let us stand up to militarism.

Rise up! Rise up, Americans!
Take peace into the street!
It is in our hands we hold our fate
Non-violent America, demonstrate!
