Poetry – Private Property

Private Property

Once there was a country

Nobody owned it.

No private property.

Once there was just land.

Now it’s law –

People are banned.

It was the robber barons.

Seized it by force

With their cannons.

We still pay them for our land

As they get richer

And live life so grand.

Once there was a country

Nobody owned it.

No private property.
