who will be calling the shots

It’s a swill no one interrupts— 
A pill that consumes and corrupts 
Our honor's been jailed
And truth’s will is impaled
As the blood PAC tempest erupts

Author's note: Many of the super-rich (who do not yet have it all) are determined to have more of the pie since their multiple residences and bank accounts are not enough and their yachts and jets are too small and range restricted (OMG).  There are about 600 people who have donated more than $1,000,000 to presidential political action committees (PACs).  The very rich, who also are trying to buy Congress, are in the process of remodeling our society.  They liked it when society was feudal--when the rest of us were consigned to serfdom or were slaves.  This weekend, the Koch brothers are interviewing candidates to see who they will spend almost a billion dollars to elect.  Are we to believe their propaganda (that they have our interest in mind)?  That is why I support the only candidate who does not have a super PAC who is running for President--Bernie Sanders.  Enough is enough and maybe, just maybe, we can prevail over the corruption of wealth.  The truth always matters and can never be denied over the long term.

    Very intriguing write. Corruption is present in every society, unfortunately. This is a clarion call to be swayed by nothing but the truth. Thanks for sharing

    G'day Duke... our political system must be a little different down here. There's a close eye kept on political donations ... so we're told; mmm - Lindsay
