Capitali$t We Are Not

Capital

Capital. Capitalize. Capitalism. The Principle.
Capital, no wait, Equity.
That thing that brings Wealth.
It’s face is never stealth.
You. Me. We. Are capital-ized.
Monetized.
Consumerized.
Demonized.
For protesting.
Succumbing to the test and
Buying all the best brands
Only a small stand
Against the giant Capitalist hand.
We are Capital.
Capitalism is us.
Our labor for pay
For in money do we trust.
We are Capital.
Capitalism is us.
Our labor for pay
Calculated and “just”
To turn a profit for the Capitalist
The corporation full of lust.
We are Capital.
Capitalism is us.
Our labor is counted.
As a resource undoubted
The body of our labor
Screams dollar signs to savor
We buy and consume
The way the Capitalist wants us to
Protesting their control
Weariness takes hold
We buy and consume
Simply doing as we’re told.
Because
The Capitalist is in control.
