A poem that will make you ponder. Read it carefully. I hope you will like this one.

Occupy the World

Occupy the World

Young lady famous for her intuition
was summoned to the Governor's mansion one day.
Upon her arrival,"Wow it's a privilege
to be beckoned to come to a man of
power on this day of occupation!"
"Come in," he said,
"Your advice is honest and true
I hear. The world is in upheaval
and I know not what to do."
She said,"Sir, sit down. A pan of
potatoes I will make for you.
When it is done. Before you
I sit the pot. Now clearly
I'm watching you not taking
a sample from the pot.
Now as I sit beside you, I can
see on the glass tabletop a piece
of potato streak from the piece
of potato you dropped. When the steam
from the pot is gone, leave some potatoes
for your guests and friends, then you may
put the lid on the pot.
Gotta go now.
One of your friends
Remember capitalism!
Good bye!
