Whether through the adulterated wealth
Of capitalism or the purer wealth of socialism,
Private hoarding or public sharing,
Economics rules the contemporary roost,
The electron bird of the people
Shorn of its feathers and unable to fly,
Angrily hugging the ground.
Who but the Messiah can save this bird
From its living death ... through the Resurrection,
The rebirth of civilization
On the highest wavicle terms
Of electron freedom and spirit?
Marx is no saviour but, rather, an Antichrist
Of the materialist death, Das Kapital
The pseudo-Bible of the radical State,
Wealth to be shared, instead of abolished,
In the interests of social progress,
The socialistic 'best of a bad (economic) job',
The evil collectivism of socialist dispensation opposing
The evil individualism of capitalist exploitation.
How inadequate from the standpoint
Of the Second Coming! He who wishes
To lift electron man above
The economic strangulation of state existence
And free him for the Centre,
The true revolutionary who despises
Mere bureaucratic rebellion against
The plutocrats, estimating revolution
On the meritocratic terms of a wavicle progression,
The positivity of the Centre
Rather than the negativity of the State.
He knows that man won't live fully
Until the living death is overcome
By the resurrection of religion
On the purest wavicle terms.
The Second Coming isn't of the Church
But of the Centre,
Isn't of Roman Catholicism
But of Social Transcendentalism,
Isn't of the Blessed Will
But of the Blessed Spirit,
Which alone portends a Life Eternal.
