The People Who Run the World

The world
is run
by people
who left
to their
own resources
could never
create the
machinery with
which they
run the
world –
guns &
bombs cars
& planes
& video
games
telescopes
TVs
cell phones
electric chairs
& cathedrals.


The only
thing the
people who
run the world
know about
is power
& how to
get it.


The only
thing they’re
good at
is appropriation.


They feed on
the beauty
talent
goodness &
genius of
others,
they debase
it &
manipulate it.


The only
thing the
people who
run the
world came
up with
on their
own is
money, an
abstraction
that makes
beauty
talent
goodness &
genius go
flatline.


Do we
really
need them?


Can we
live
without them?
