What Good Are You...?

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? © 6.29.2016 Penny Kelly
