Conversion of Sacred Life into Money

A depersonalized holocaust slowly proceeds Under convertible assuaged currency Separate disparate lives, anonymous dredging Tear against the land, air, and crawling Human hands finalized the creed Scourging banks to let the biosphere bleed Recognizing no natural dignity Expect that converted into commodified property Distraction allows us to peel away Taking the mind narrower still And filling the void with caramelized exchanges Simply look away The slave servitude continues
