The Steel Valise of Power

 

I saw blue and white collared slaves dragged wretchedly through swamps of

Debt and burnt ingratitude

brought before the great machine of mind and

thrown into the steel valise of power

 

In droning masses they were judged by manmade law and

sold as corporate property

Traded hands, their children born from dormant lust and

Reared by lies and mortal oaths

 

We have all been branded secret numbers

Coded hotly in the flesh

Analyzed by ancient cabals like

stock and so dismissed as cattle

 

We have all of us born crosses and been spat out lost

Inebriated into the dull

Reverberating thunder of the Empire

roused and merciless

 

Clutched penniless and feeble trembling still

Before her mighty breast!
