Cinquain #2


Banks, governments, our employers
Have us all trapped, it seems to me,
Locked up like death row prisoners
In cellblocks we can’t even see,
Where the bars are made of money,

Shackled by the dead weight of debt,
While credit card card companies and
The huge multinationals set
The bar on our living standard,
Well, thanks for that guys, ain’t life grand?

Advertising tells us how we
Should live, look, eat, drink, sleep and die,
No wonder I don’t watch TV,
“I have choice and free will!!!” You cry,
Go find your freedom, go on, try ..
