voting

voting
We vote for the ones with lots of money to spend on their campaigns
We vote to keep on producing inequality
We vote for further collaboration in wars and pollution
We vote to guarantee human rights for the few
We vote for less culture that touches our soul
We vote for keep on watching sensation
We vote for the ones who were in opposition before elections
We vote for the ones who did not make a difference in last election
We vote because our alternative isn’t organised enough
We vote because we believe some cheap promises …
that die behind their negociation-desks

Wonder if there will come a day that the individual realises his power
Comes at work and starts to work slower the first day, slower the second,
slowest the third…starts talking with his fellow-workers about it all.
Wonder if there will come a day when workers start talking about their lives :
Do they get enough holiday ? Why do they pay to much for everything ? Wonder when they will realise that a lot of the work they are doiing is not necessary, and a lot is not beeing done.
Wonder why and when and how organisation will grow.
By demanding more money and by working less stressed ?
The money-system will die quicker, but will have to sack us even more.
Why not beiing one step ahead of this all : and demanding it’s abolition ?
Wonder if we can be disciplined enough to keep on believing in our new dream. Wonder if we get used to work out of solidarity instead of working because out of necessity. I think in the end we will.
