I am ashamed to see security guards at my Bank,
armored vehicles used in money transport
and Police officers on the streets patrolling.
Supermarket loss-prevention professionals
and their cameras sleepless watching upon us.
Some say that this is intrinsic to Capitalism,
way of suitable business we inherit from forefathers.
I am not used to the economic laws and marketing.
I am simply a poet, perhaps, or certainly, a minor one,
who wants to manifest that our brothers and sisters,
no-poet-people would have, by now, already changed
this way we have been chained to.
