the people are starving

and she said
let them eat cake
and now

we feed them french fries
not sprung from any
revolution

but rising up
freer than the range of chickens
ready for plucking

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
