Storming “ThTown’s” morning dew like badged vermin
Creeping from bent mist morning light, just before five
Barking cold commands in Pig Latin—or German?
Capitalist property law’s such barbaric jive!
Armed with aerosol bigotry, right from the can
Battering doors as the banksters' blu klux klan
Platoon, battalion, brigade—or whole damn division?
Invading with battering rams, A-Rs, robots and tanks
Raiding the unsheltered with Gestapo precision
For speculating realtors and parasitic banks…
Revealing jungle law of the rich to a woke mass—
Unhoused women and children of the working-class…
Flaunting naked violence of the plutocratic state
Guarding four vacant houses for each person unhoused
Proving—once again—what makes Amerikkka “great—“
Heavy-handed hoods—meeting a movement aroused!!
