When Our Master/Slave Days Are Done, Michael?

when they are over they will be over
when enough masters remember
the past of being a slave
and all our revolution leaders
who cop’ted newly acquired power
into dictatorship
(how close are we Mike
to a democratically elected
president dictator?)
As a species
we know our history
of gory (not glory) war
hang down yer head Tom Dooley
now look back upon the splendor
as a species we’ve created
it took both master and slave
to create the Great Pyramids et al
the product awes us
but not the production
Our master/slave days will be done, Michael
when equal means what it means
not “some more equal than others.”
