At the Hustings.
(Published at Rats Ass)
Citizens, I say to you:
Shed no tears for children caught in war.
There is no money in that.
Think not upon your children's future.
Take your profit here and now.
Ignore questions about neighbours.
Your responsibility is to yourself alone.
Poverty and inequality are always with us.
Your wealth is only yours.
Fools worry about the state of the earth.
I say you cannot bank beauty.
You cannot live on bread alone,
The only real wealth is money.
I set you free.
a mere commodity.
Gather to yourself
Exploit, exploit, exploit.
