Deja Vu (Sonnet)

by tjtherien

History repeats what humans forget
Recycling failed social policies
“Let them eat cake…” said Marie Antoinette
Slave of ignorant ideologies
Unable to afford a loaf of bread
Revolution was blowing in the wind
Storming the Bastille, detach state from head

And the privilege of governing rescind
Ruling class along with Louis sixteen
Were taken into custody or slain
Kangaroo court, sentenced to guillotine
Rowers openly rejecting coxswain
Skip ahead, fast forward three hundred years
Do our social elite share the same fears?
