Marxism Today

There is a lot of sadness
that I can't do anything about.

If I focus on it too much
then I carry the feelings
that I know do me no good
and do not change the world.

My respite is remember Karl Marx
'History happens first as tragedy
then it repeats itself as farce',

If I look back to the first times
of a particular event they become the original,
but by now well worn, tragedy.
When it is repeated become farce.

Whatever the bathos of an event,
with how the farce repeats itself
this proves that the worst that can happen
is that we are the butt of a cosmic joke.

Survive that and we can survive anything.
