Isms, schisms
separate but equal,
surreal Relativism.
Dictated by the
dominant culture, or
Who’s on top.
Spreading ideologies
in burgeoning markets
developing economies
Third-World
Consumerism of soda pop.
Socialism on the rise
worldwide
despite Capitalism’s
hew and cry.
Downwardly mobile
barely getting by.
Classism at
an all-time high.
In the Land of the Free
bills must be paid
while basic necessities
are overlaid
by perceived needs
advertised, materialistic,
also basic, greeds.
Give me more
elevated isms,
Impressionism,
Confucianisms,
a broader application
of Community Activism.
Where all are part
of one tribe,
Humanism.
Despite our
differences,
committed to
Pacifism.
