Our corporate masters speak

Wrap yourselves in stucco cocoons

and we will feed your addictions

 

Climb into your wheeled boxes

and hurry to serve our needs

 

Indebt yourselves so that we

may acquire your homes and goods

All hail the American aristocracy. What’s theirs is theirs. What’s yours will soon be theirs, too, if it isn’t already.

 

Indebt your children also, for life,

and entrust them to our care

 

Ignore the pressures we impose

as we subtly exert our will

 

We have bought your politicians

and they do our bidding – we own them

 

Send your legions to fight our wars,

sacrifice all so that we may prosper

 

Don’t question, for we know what is best;

be grateful for what we give you

 

Believe that we are your salvation
