Unequals

All men are created equal.
A few acquire power. Some accumulate wealth. The rest become unequals.

Unequals

It is a / well-ordered
Parade / a cavalcade /
Of the powerful
And / the wealthy /
With exemplary
Composure / safe /
In the knowledge
That / hierarchy is /
The golden shield
Against / the dance
Of death
Raging unrestrained / unbridled /
Sucking the breath
Out / of lungs /
And fuelling pyres
Of unequals /
