The State of the Nation

Some window
cleaning accounts
that don’t
pay:
AT&T
Verizon
Fred Meyer.


When I
ran it
past a
collection agency
they smiled
& said
their hands
were tied.


A fundamental
definition of
Fascism is
a marriage
between government
& corporate
power.


In today’s
world things
have gone
a step
further.


Corporate power
has divorced
government &
is collecting
alimony.


The courts
are its
mistress.


The military
is its
body guard.


The population
is placated
with misinformation
junk food
frivolous toys
& sick
entertainment.


It’s highly
unlikely that
things will
get better.
