Marvelling at property

On a beautiful night
Sunlight still waning
I look across the bay
To the skyline beyond

At the achievements
Of time and millions of men

Then I look to the ship
Owned by one man
At its opulence
At the wealth it implies

That one man in millions
Could have it

Considering the poverty
Of so many implied
I appreciate all the more
Proudhon’s exhortation:

Property is theft!

Property is theft! (French: La propriété, c’est le vol !) is a slogan coined by French anarchist Pierre-Joseph Proudhon in his 1840 book What is Property? Or, an Inquiry into the Principle of Right and of Government.
