“The Times They Are A’ Changin'”

My mother used to say when her shoeless mother was shipped over from Italy during the first world war when her 17-year old brother joined the Canadian army that made a name for Canada and got killed, they used to call her a “cock[a] roach”. When the next war, WWII came they put her family out of business as enemy combatants.

Today everyone has shoes and are middle class, citizens of the world, accounting, computing and journalizing so that CEO’s, President Trump and his monied cohorts can stay rich.
