Capitalism presents us with two paths to defeat:

Either to accommodate ourselves to every injustice,

Taking each imposition lying down

(As if we could sleep on a bed of nails),

Or else to sacrifice ourselves

In useless gestures of isolated defiance-

To take arms, as they say, against a sea of troubles,

(Not so much to end them but more to the point

To be done with our miserable existence)

Hardest of all

Is to fight where we stand,

for ourselves and together

As if we might even triumph:

Not to die fighting,

but to live that way--

Courageously, graciously, joyously.
