.Then They Came for the Shoppers

Late capitalism in verse

First they drove out the wealthy

The City by the Bay did nothing

Then they terrified the tourists

And the City did not speak

Now retail rampagers change

Nordstroms into a stripped mall

And the City watches on video

When there is nothing left to steal

And there is no one left to rob

And those who can have fled

Only Greco/Roman statues

Of naked white ancestors

Stand alone on sale

Inside Nordstroms’

New museum
