The Rally

filling a grand old theatre
an orange cardboard armada
a sea of upturned optimism
a rolling clamour of applause
decrying the avaricious one-percenters
the tin-eared politicians
in bed with the capitalist class
the private-yacht crowd
the loophole experts
there is hope here, hope that 
a salmon named unity will
conquer the river of cash
settle in a lake of compassion and
spawn the warriors of justice

— Paul Raworth Bennett
