Apathy = Frito Bandito
Barf Bag Poem #16

It’s not just what we’ve done that’s appalling,
it’s why we did it that sickens me. Is there
a new Armageddon club? Should “wage slave
barons” be added to our legal tender? We’ve
ruined Argentina’s economy to protect J.P
Morgan and friends, sink borrowed billions into
oil wars, and snicker when it’s China’s money
paying for a war that ends up controlling their
energy! The twisted fucks at the top figure that
if the war comes here, they’ll scoot over to Europe
or New Zealand to keep up with how their home
properties are doing on the news. Which fails first,
environment or oil? If population swells will Monsanto
de-crop the third world? Is everyone trapped by the
spell of money? Where is the outrage? Where have
all the protests gone, long time passing? You never
could vote bankers out, but the green counterpunch
has not materialized and our failure may well mean
the end of the world. Drat. Blast. Damn!
