Goodnight sleep tight

 

You may not meet this moment again

Born into a world that takes to receive

Even the ghosts of the past, now to selfish to disappear

Haunt our thoughts with adverts

We are wanting all, because we feel so empty

Only a fool will receive all they deserve

We watch the rich men on our televisions

They tell us what we desire, but cannot afford

The world starves and grows obese at the same time

For the desire of millions

will become our new home

unspoken questions make a trembling sound

only the promise of the day returning

allows us to sleep at night

Now we are wishing and wondering

for ‘world peace and an end to poverty’

the best joke I have ever heard

No one laughs

The poor and suffering have no voice

In the boardroom someone shrugged, and the meeting continued…

Don’t even think a thought

as you wait for someone to tell you, ‘WANT’ is required to make them happy

No violence

No hysteria

and above all –  no sentiment about the poor

What do they bring to this party?

Only their misery and who needs that with cocktails?

Is there anything left for people to take?

What remains in human dignity that is worth selling?

So when the rich man

gives his bonus to charity as a tax dodge

It will not save him

Shaking someones hand after mugging them

Will not stop your violence

Ultimate control

Is the desire of the rich

Market forces and world economics

try to give the charm of nostalgia

Exploit the poor, just don’t call them slaves

because this is the 21st Century, and that would be rude

in this modern world of old values

The customer is always right

So why do we never get what we need?

We only get what they make us desire

Armed and equipped to perfection

Your government has all your needs in hand

So stay calm and relax with a ‘whiter than white’ smile

Pay all your taxes until you get rich enough to avoid them

Never question a single thing,

and

Goodnight sleep tight.
