behavioral modification…

the names
of
their true
gods
adorn
their bumper stickers
embossed
with
their
mindless mantras
those
carefully contrived
scriptures
from
an ad agency
after being
thoroughly
researched
by
behavioral scientists
and
predicted
to be
on par
with
the gospel
convincing
even
saints
to vote
for
the devil

 

what they didn’t teach you in school…

didn't teach in school

the brown bag prophet
said
there ain’t
any
national
government failures
cuz’
there ain’t
any
national governments
all we got
is
corporate america
corporate russia
china
or
some other
flag drapped coffin concept
of a nation
hell
we ain’t even
got that
what we got
is
an international corporate nation
where justice is a commodity
sold
to the highest bidder
a virtual nation
where everyone
works
lives
and
dies
a profit margin nation
which demands
that parents
sacrifice their children
to assure quarterly gains
hell
freedom
and
national pride
are the best
marketing ploys
ever
conceived

a model marketing campaign…

selling you
all those comic books
in various formats
was
an absolute
stroke of genius
you bought into
every preposterous theme
we presented
the good guy
always wins in the end
the bad guy
will have his day of reckoning
and
our all time favorite
the meek
shall inherit the earth
slogans so embedded
into the fabric of society
that even
we
from time to time
forget that those mottos
are just
part of the operational manual
for your limited existence
on this planet
however
those advertising maxims
have convinced you
that your sons
and daughters
should die
to protect our interest
which we wrap
in a patriotic flag
around billions of dollars
using the appropriate color scheme
of course
painting everything
from our finger nails
to our yachts
to which
you are
indebted
to us
