Unassign The Bogeyman

July 26, 2021

Fear not the bogeyman
Not under your bed
.
Purge instead the one
Floating in your head
.
Reiterated with a phonetic flair
Tinged with enough verbal twang
Saturated with stifling stink
And voila you have your bogeyman
.
Pick any word ending with ist
To create a bogeyman
.
Faux news consumers have
Locked on to Socialists as
Their phantom of choice
Something to be feared
Psyching up the courage
To battle an unseen specter
Conjured up from ignorance
.
Socialist- one who advocates
.
Socialism
.
2b: a system or condition of society.             in which the means of production are  owned and controlled by the state.

– M-W.com
.
Just because their name isn’t on it
Doesn’t mean they don’t control it
Or that they are not “socialist” programs
.
Uninsured Motorist
Workman’s compensation
Social “Security”
Military Industrial Complex
.
There in LIE the discrepancies
.
People believing they are free
While being enslaved by banks
Pharmaceuticals, tax bills and…
.
Corporations making the same
Products slightly faster and
Just a little bit shinier chaining
The consumer on the endless
Keep up with the “Joneses” treadmill
.
Which from a different angle
.
“Capitalistⁿ can be a bogeyman also
.
Pronounced with a hard K
Delivered with an upturned nose
Surrounded by words like greedy
Stingy filthy rich money bags fat cat
.
Where as if we evolved
In to a Meritocracy
All the best people
Would rise into the
Most necessary positions
Without a power grab
Rooted in fear or control
.
One.
There are no meritocratists to fear
.
Two.
It would be too hard to pronounce
To scare anybody anyway
.
“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”
.
