Corporate muscles flexed once again,
Trampling the rights of the common man.
What fools believe that corporations are people?
Why does one person’s belief trump that of another?
Where is the judicial in all of this?
Are they not charged with protecting the people’s rights?
They have become political tyrants,
Partisan and putrid as the legislative and executive.
“We The People” has become a joke;
Something relegated to the past,
Something we look back fondly on that once existed,
But sadly exist no more.
Individuals have no power to enact change
Where money and business rule.
Silenced by the dollar, we are ignored.
Was this erected in our framework,
Was this what the founders intended,
That man should be subjugated by greed and profit?
We cry foul at those who infringe on human and civil rights,
Yet we are nothing but hypocrites,
Infringing on the rights of our own.
There is no fairness under the law,
There is no justice under the law,
Unless you can afford to buy it.
Raise the gavel…
We’ve sold out to the highest bidder!
