The Corporate

The Corporate Where did you get your ill gotten gains? From broken backs and forgotten pains? And will your wealth wash out the bloodstains From the blue collars of those that came To work for your pennies while you reign? No matter to you, - you feel no shame... For YOU live the life of luxury. That is fine but you fail to see, You garner wealth and give measly. Then your shareholders want more from thee. So you move the jobs to over sea. It causes strife but - you lack empathy . You bend You rend You mend And look You begged And borrowed Bought And took You justify the pain that you cause, “Just business” you say “no need to pause” Rules don’t bind you, you just break the laws. Your lobbyists mend by paying the pawns. Your workers being thrown out on their front lawns! But you don’t care to undo these wrongs... All you’ve created is insubstantial. Your sole purpose? to increase your financial Needs to support your gluttonous life, While the workers toil and suffer in strife People are starving, their kids they can’t feed... Where does greed end? How much wealth do YOU need?
