Poem: "Some Students"

some students
put me on the front lines
of a massive class war
where run-ons and grammar
are the bullets and bombs
and commas and apostrophes
are the rations and gear--

the battle is for literacy
(and its deserts):
knowledge-time-cars-
money-credit-life expectancy-
family planning-housing-and:
Money/Capital/Status/Gold/
Silver/Race/Class--and
above all, Power.

communicating the reality of
this battle becomes my job
and i can't help but want to
give up; but it's class time again.
