[politics, poetry] we are two nations

"we are two nations America our nation has been beaten by strangers who have bought the laws and fenced off the meadows and cut down the woods for pulp and turned our pleasant cities into slums and sweated the wealth out of our people and when they want to they hire the executioner to throw the switch" -- Jon Dos Passos, "Sacco & Vanzetti/The Camera Eye (50)"
I'd forgotten how much I liked Dos Passos; a tip of the hat to the Rude Pundit. He isn't work-safe, nor is he for the faint of heart or overly-politically-correct, but damn! when he's good, he's good.
