Power Play

Put a bow on it, carcasses laid in waste

Pepsi drained another lake for your

Sweet tooth

Put a ring on it, adolescent girls wed

In countries where rape and abuse run


Broken hands still toil barren soil

Contractors swallow up farmland

Border walls keep out beating hearts

And inside do the swollen wrists sway

Dominatrix of power over the innocent

And prodding mother of the insolent

Acid rain is real on the ghettos

Brothers and sisters fill the sewers

I’ve seen more blow than dinners

And more deadbeat dads than winners

Leaving mommy for dancers woefully

Unkept to be anything than spenders

Of the dollars they’ve kept

Why is our society so desperate to please

Too easily dropped to its knees

And desperate not to be the bitch

Finds itself struck in the face

Once again
