The 7 Day Rat Race
by Sarah A

Racing towards the weekend, Mom is full of joy.
A hard week’s worth of work, all worth it and so
she can see her little boy.

Once Saturday morn hits,
they play outside all day in the sun.
The boy laughs and wonders,
Why can’t every day be this fun?

They go and get ice cream

Leeches
by Frank Costabile

Make the grade, but pay a price
Walk the line with care
Seek reward, for effort spent
But leave some heart to spare 

Keep the fires burning
And aim to succeed
In temporarily satiating
The pigs that come to feed.

Christmas Spirit
by Major Jellyfish

The wealthy familly
The christmas spirit
All bright and cheery
How can you fear it?
Room filled with laughter

The murdered turkey
Rots for days after
While hungry children
On their last chapter

On Student Loan Forgiveness and College Debt
by Ian McCleary

The Democratic Party for more than a century has been supportive of Social Democratic legislation. Social Democratic, meaning a Democracy that tried to fix some of the problems that are a result of an unrestrained and inhumane breed of capitalism.
A recent example of it was Biden's Student Loan Debt Forgiveness Program. Because students had to pay these extortionary rates for college, Biden promised that he would erase the rest of the debt students would have left to pay for the years to come with public tax dollars.
The amount of money these colleges and universities charge for tuition among other educational expenses are beyond excessive and reflect one of the colleges highest priorities besides educating future generations on what they need to know to be an active part of America's workforce. They waste money on administrators salaries, the marketing and promoting their institution, construction, and little on the students who go there.
Students should not have to go to schools like these and should choose an alternative that is cheaper and less costly. I just happened to be lucky that my parents had the money and the generosity to pay my way through four semesters of college. In some ways I feel that I was privileged compared with other students, who did not have as big a safety net.
The question is whether government will be the remedy to the problem. While they were noble actions on the part of the president, the excesses of Capitalism will still be around, he has not gotten rid of them. He has not gotten rid of them with the stroke of his pen or by executive order. He has only brought attention to the problem, and maybe that is only what this country needed to hear. I have heard it from so many people that higher education is a scam, and I can see why they might say that now. Why pay all that money to learn in the hopes of getting a job after university when there are other places and ways of getting an education?

Morals
by Alana Alpres

In this world of capitalism's grasp,
Where wealth is worshiped and morals lapse,
I stand at a crossroads, torn between two fates,
One that feeds the fire, and one that breaks the gates.

On the one hand, I am tempted by the lure of success,
To climb the corporate ladder and fulfill my own excess,
But on the other, I hear the call of a different way,
A path of purpose and meaning, not just chasing pay.

Mumney
by Brady Stewart

The world has been wonky lately,
Elephant donkey
With the hands of defeat being fed
To those without the money
To those perching,
You Are scummy
Hello organs,
When the world becomes mummy

Car Dealerships And Our Profit Driven World
by Ian McCleary

There is really only one full day I have with my wife, that is Sunday. My wife works at a Car dealership which is a very demanding job. They cannot go one hour without the thought of money. They watch her and listen into her by tapping her phone to see if she is following their instructions. They are no strangers to the use of surveillance.
They don't seem to care whether she has any time for me. They have pushed her hours later on weekdays. They put it quite bluntly to her that if she wants a family she will have to find another job. A nice thought but not so easy considering the competitive nature of Capitalism and the people who represent it.
She has tried everything to change their minds and they haven't budged, nothing will even get them to compromise on her hours. They say these are your hours and they are not changing! You don't like it, go somewhere else.
Isn't that always how it is with them. The entire chain of command. They don't care what life you have outside of it. Once you have signed the papers upon being hired you are in a sense theirs. These thoughts would infuriate me more if I had to work for the company my wife works for. But luckily I work for the county and things are much different there. They unlike the car dealership where she works, don't have to be too concerned about where they are getting their money.
As for the private sector that my wife works for, they could end up losing money and that could have a slight effect on whether they do business in the future, but most large companies like GM, don't ever have to worry about going under, probably ever in our lifetime, or even other lifetimes from now, because they are worth some of them billions of dollars in stock. There is a great concentration of wealth in this country and that wealth is not going to go anywhere as long as there is a need for this system. And so this is also why we like to forget the oppression they use on us, that they would violate our freedoms in ways that we would only think was in the nature of governments to do.
