BEHIND THE VEIL

Behind the veil
Lies a familiar face
A race
A particular stench
Stinking rich
Reeking of privilege
Their capitalism, a euphemism
For slavery, sweatshops, and low wages…

Behind the veil
Lies the top 1 percent
The upper echelon of
Capitalistic tricks
International poverty pimps
Bleeding the needy
The need to be greedy
Insidiously killing mankind…

Behind the veil
Lies are told
Propaganda sold
Wars waged
Natural resources siphoned away
Environmental decay
Capital rules the day
Humanity falls by the wayside…
