After Ruskin, by Oonah V Joslin

 Found Poem: from Pg 35 “Unto this Last” – John Ruskin
impetuous decisions
our respect
subjects to experiment upon
give poison in the mask of
After Ruskin
We are not citizens.
We are subjects to experiment upon.
And this is not science.
It’s politics.
It gives poison in the mask of government.
No justice let alone mercy
as if existence is the most people deserve.
Imperious and impetuous decisions wrapped in lies.
They do not need or solicit our respect
who keep themselves in power by birth or bribes.
