America For Sale Poem

America For Sale

poem by Mary Margaret Park



it is in the fall of truth

and in the flight of reason


America’s trapped

in a capitalist cage

the lackeys in Washington

have taken center stage


there’s a huge power auction

up on capital hill

the constitution downsized

for government swill


the politics of excess

dictate the rules

our paragons of democracy

court jesters and fools


it’s rumored the oval office

has a currency theme

stock trading symbols

against dollar bill green


America’s stock markets

move to an elitist sway

the everyman majority

rarely comes into play


globalization

is a super sonic wave

our economy falling

swept into its wake


industrialization

is long past its prime

in this cyclone of change

we must evolve to survive


the nation’s burdened by

big brothers beat

we’re slaves in a box

of corporate deceit


it is in government corruption

that democracy falls


it is the selling of America

that steals the future for us all
