Success Mythology



S-u-c-c-e-s-s
that's the way
we spell
repress

At an early age
our minds
are occupied
by the corporate
success
mythology

My mother
taught it
to me well

Keep your
nose clean.
Don't rock
the boat.
Climb
the corporate ladder.
Get a job
with a fancy title.
A business card
your mother
can brag about.
You can't beat
city hall
so don't
bother trying
cause you
might get on some
list
and get blackballed
or embarrass
the family.
Keep your
head down
your mouth
shut
and your eyes
fixed on the money.

This mythology
that we can
all become
millionaires
keeps the people
divided
from one another
It's anti-nature
and allows
the oligarchy
to have their way

Only when
we reject
the business model
can the people
really take back
control
of our lives
our resources
and our futures
