Crumbling Monuments To Corporate Control

Day#27 #LexPoMo poetry challenge

Capitalism is
extermination dressed up
in a suit and tie

A grotesque swine, found
digging in pits of profit
wallowing in greed

These filthy beasts feed
on the bones of every city
wrought with avarice

Austerity strikes
a match, which burns the ladder
out of poverty

Cadavers lay bare
in crumbling monuments
to corporate control
