Cleverly Disguised

August 20, 2018

Socialism

.
Masked as democracy

.
Satiating an ideal cloaked in delusion
By using a bogeyman word that frightens
With just four syllables and no thought
That it is occurring right under their noses
Demonizing something misunderstood
Which is easier than opening eyes, minds

.
When the government bails out

Auto manufacturers

That is socialism

 

 

When the government bails out

The banks

That is socialism

 

 

When the government bails out

Insurance companies

That is socialism

.
When the government

Sustains the military industrial complex

By building and never using the products
(Products, a euphemism for wmd’s)
For the simple sake to keep people busy
To have money to spend, taxes to pay

That is socialism

.
When the government

Sustains an unnecessary standing army

That is socialism

 

When the government

Frees corporations of tax obligations
To build sports stadiums

That is socialism

 

When the government

Bails out corporate farms due to
Bad international intentional trade wars

That is socialism

 

When the government

Passes discriminatory laws that
Purposefully fill “For Profit Prisons”

That is socialism

 

When the government uses the media

To disseminate its own soap opera of
Keeping eyes glued, sides chosen
Who dunnit, who’s guilty, who cares
With nary a mea culpa or youa culpa

To get you to buy unnecessary products
In a vicious cycle of buying, selling, trying
Returning, consuming, disposing, wasting
Not sharing, breaking and burying

.
Sponsored by hyperbolic claims of
If you buy this, injest that, get a faster
One of these, a shinier one of those
Drink a colder beverage, eat a better
Faster, more topping, artery clogging
Cheesier, tastier, heart stopping, hot pizza
.

Then you’ll be able to sleep on a better
Mattress, a cooler pillow, in a clean house
With a bigger appendage, a sexier bra
.

While your credit cards get maxed out
Causing you to become stressed out
Imbibing enough so you’ll be passed out

 

That is socialism

.
Plus

.
When the government

.
Wants to save a fetus
But kill a sovereign citizen or
Murder the wrongly accused
Or even the guilty as charged
.

That is hypocrisy

.
When the government

.
Presents the working class with a tax cut
That primarily benefits the wealthy

.
That is hypocrisy and theft

.
When the government

.
Has an alleged leader who averages six
To seven truth misrepresentations a day
.

 

That is charlatanism

.
Masquerade!

Every face a different shade…
Masquerade!
Look around –
there’s another
mask behind you!

//

Drink it in, drink it up
till you’ve drowned
in the light…
in the sound…
But who can name the face…?
(Of socialism)

“Masquerade”

Phantom Of The Opera
