Jose Padua: Socialism

In the town of
Front Royal where
I live I am a socialist.

I live there with
my socialist wife
and my socialist daughter
and my socialist son.

We think socialist
thoughts like “water,
wind, sun, moon, earth
belong to us all”
and “privatize this.”

Just like we did
when we lived
in the fatherland.
