THINNING IT ALL OUT



Even at Taco Bell
the corporate decision
has been taken
'thin out the refried beans'
the packing tape I use
has been thinned out
by 3M Scotch
the bumperstickers
on our car
don't last so long
they've been
thinned out too

corporate greed
everywhere
maximize profits
minimize
product quality
and durability
chew up the planet
we can make money
off it

Capitalism
is the death machine
blasting
drilling
digging
grinding
chewing
spitting
polluting

We've been told
we can't talk
openly about
capitalism

if you do
you will be
called a commie
and put on
a black list
and maybe even
the 'black & blue'
list
the mob comes in
and destroys
your knees

the thinning
of the superfluous
populations
Africa
Middle East
is underway
NATO in charge
of the mission
the "peace alliance"
at work

the mafia is government
politicians
enable mobsters
fascists carry out
the heavy hitting
people suffer
