Let the Market Set the Price of Labor
|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Let the market set the price of labor!
And who would want to vote for such a life?
Because we live in a democracy,
Our policies are shaped by peaceful strife,
Rewarding those who fight for what they favor.
Despite the logic, what fool would agree,
Alerted to his interest, to turn over,
Yielding neck to economic knife?
