What good are you, Government, with your patriot laws and
constitutional facades, when you cannot stop the flare of false flags
as regular as morning dew?
What good are you, Newspaper, with your drama and drivel,
when you cannot discern the difference
between propaganda and news?
What good are you, Big Pharma, with your miracle pills and
magic suppression of symptoms, if the make-believe cure
is worse than the original disease?
What good are you, Big Ag, with your rolling acres of corn and soy,
if all you can offer is paper food that fails to nourish
the bodies you claim to be growing for?
What good are you, Weatherman, with your computer models and
climate data, when you are not the one
controlling the weather?
What good are you, Mr. Ed, with your classroom theories and
petty cliques, when all you accomplish is lockstep thought that
never ventures outside the box?
What good are you, Master Fed, with your printing presses and trillions of dollars,
when you cannot balance a single checkbook, half of us are hungry,
and you reserve all of the money for a handful of crooked dealers?
What good are you, Science, with your complex algorithms and fancy theorems,
if everything you say has been bought and paid for and
nothing you proclaim nurtures daily reality?
What good are you, Corporation, with your fat paychecks and fancy profits,
when your soulless routines and habitat destruction
squeeze the creative spark out of every soul?
What good are you, Facebook, with your social media and meta connections,
if nothing of passion or prejudice is allowed and we all mince words
to match your definitions of political and social correctness?
