Suits (A Poem of Modern Empire)


Monarchs didn’t have to bloody their hands to enrich themselves and the court of "noble" land owners that served them…they had armies and “explorers” for that.

The monarchs of today, which we refer to as Captains of Industry, enrich themselves through Ceos, shareholders and resource acquisition which they call "wars on terror"…and the courts that serve them are world governments.


Charities only give back a fraction of what should not have been taken in the first place. If you want to change the world. Change the way business is done.

Suits

( A Poem of Modern Empire)



Soaked in indigenous blood

Perfect in cut
Ultimate in luxury
Prototypes of the latest fashion

Arm-candy spouses mill about
forgotten, vestigial organs
organizing charities -
necessary P.R. for
The Man who
takes everything

Plastic, public smiles
ever-mindful
of the stables of young flesh
housed nearby
for the exclusive use of
their conquerors

Marbled walls
flanked with official portraits
in the hallowed halls of
Will-To-Power
