Issue # 1409      6 May 2009

CORPORATE GREED

to be up to speed

in the world of corporate greed

forget all human need

you must dress the part

walk the part, talk the part

eat the part, sleep the part …

groom those suckers for the crunch

invite them to your toxic lunch

DO NOT LOOK AT FRANGIPANNI TREES

peer deep into the bowels

of your computer screen

lock onto the grid

make the highest bid

then scramble and tangle

fight and bite

claw and saw

rip and shit

your way to the top

YOU HAVE ENTERED THE JUNGLE

DO NOT BUNGLE

and if you do,

take 30 million dollars

away with you

WORSHIP YOUR GREAT GODS

GNP, GDP, STUPIDITY

READY FORAPEE

WANKERS AND BANKERS

BEARS AND SHARES

NOBODY KNOWS AND

NOBODY CARES

Capitalist cowboys! Corporate Neroes!

yes, you – you who fiddled

while the world went bust

did you not see the flowers

had already fallen

from the frangipanni tree

and the grapes of your summer’s greed

had shriveled on the profit vine

and don’t bother to tell us

it isn’t your fault

that the homeless mother sits

now with her crying baby

in the derelict car at the end of your street

starving to death under the barren trees

NOTE DOWN THIS

IT IS YOUR FAULT

it will be a long, cold winter

this winter of corporate greed
