Poem – Oxymoronic Blues (By Mankh)

Oxymoronic Blues – By Mankh

corporations legally persons while persons treated as illegals,
Facebook and faceless corporations,
home alone on social media,
consumer confidence,
industrial park,
professional sports a game,
state-of-the-Art,
free press,
politically correct,
“…deriving their Powers from the Consent of the Governed”,
peacekeeper missile,
friendly fire,
holy war,
pre-emptive self-defense,
virtual reality,
false profits predicting a future based on quarterly earnings,
false profits based on off-shoring, loopholes, cooked books,
false profits doling out minimum wage hikes
sure, it helps, but
you want fries with that bone?
