Congratulations! (a diatribe)

I’d like to take a moment

and acknowledge the enormous success

achieved by those magnates of

modern industrial society.


The battle was by no means an easy one

opposed by truth at every turn

motivated by nothing more

than the desire for financial gain


What stunningly ingenious fabrications

cut from whole cloth

how reasonable their presentation

made them appear


Integrity, morality, ethics

unhesitatingly sacrificed

on a golden altar

in the name of wealth


What glittering wonders

of technology

sold at exorbitant prices

you can afford to buy!


Still, with overflowing billfold

what coinage is required

for the washing away of stain

from a corrupt heart?
