12 Jul 2016 – Sonnet

You say the game is rigged? What news is that?
Are you just waking up? Where HAVE you been?
The lean get leaner while the pigs grow fat –
they haven’t found a use yet for our skins,
but that’s the goal: the hide, the hands, the toes,
someday there’ll be some military use,
and that’s the day when everybody goes –
free market forces bidding for our juice!
Bloods Red and Blue – they only want one thing,
and that’s the serfdom of the common man –
so dance along! They’ll teach you what to sing!
Your guns you’ll find quite useless in your hands!
The way things are the wannabe’s won’t quote:
“the rich all play for keeps – who needs YOUR vote?”
