Inflation | Nicanor Parra, 1972

Koshiro Onchi, Caricature No. 1 (Bread and Match), 1948

Bread goes up so bread goes up again
Rents go up
This brings an instant doubling of all rents
The cost of clothing goes up
So the cost of clothing goes up again.
There's no way out
We're caught in a vicious circle.
In the cage there is food.
Not much, but there is food.
Outside are only great stretches of freedom. 

Nicanor Parra, Inflation, (Emergency Poems) 1972
