Conspiracy Theory

Conspiracy Theory

They are sucking us up,
with a vacuum called stimulus.
They dump us out,
into a trash heap called poverty,
leave us to die…
rotting from the inside of curable diseases.
They tricked us with jobs, home loans, and expendable incomes.
Then they took it all back.
Traded us for foreclosures, evictions, and reposessions.
They are predatory lenders and empty carbohydrates,
Walmart, Exxon, BP,
who, as publicly traded companies need to make their first priority their stockholders.
I’m talking about the grocery stores that charge 99 cents for pepsi and 5 dollars for milk,
fast food, financial institutions, Wells Fargo and Bank of America,
energy drinks and cigarette companies.
They chain smoke our bodies and minds until all we can do is go along,
This is not a conspiracy. This is our world.
And we need to rethink the whole fricken thing…
ME and YOU.
