According To A Sign

May 27, 2019

Shoplifting is a crime

You will be caught

You will be prosecuted

.

 

Lest of course

Your shirt has a white collar

Jacket is blue, tie is red

And you occupy an oval office

Stealing is perfectly legal

If legislated in the form

Of tax breaks for corporations

Collusion-less

Aiding and abetting

Of elections

 

.

 

Funny how

What is accepted

As a “crime”

Is based on the context

Of who is profiled

As the thief

Steal a loaf of bread

To feed your family

Get punished

Steal loaves of bread

Because you can

Slice it up with your

Gluttonous cronies

Is

Business as usual

Just a

Sign of the times

From → Paradox, random
