NaPoWriMo, Day Thirty, Poem Twenty-Seven

Remembering Loyalty Day

It's not whether the company
can give the employee
a living wage.

It's whether the employee
can keep the company alive
for one more day.

All the police
will march your streets
while you watch from work.

It's still individual liberty
if you choose to accept
these new pledges.

It's still limited government
if you choose to govern yourself
under camera.

It's stil inherent dignity
so long as quantity
is unrevealed.

Take part. Our parade
becomes a barricade
to walk into.
