President Dollar

President dollar

     your fortune owns you.

You were bought

       from the day you were sold.

You would hang

       the golden goose

         from a diamond-studded noose,

Just to learn

       how to turn lead into gold.


Perhaps you are stupid,

     which makes you more lethal

Than someone smart,

       whose heart may have simply grown cold.

You will wipe

       the human race

         from off the planet’s face

And never once

       question the lies you have been told.
