Book 20

‘”You are shrouded in night from top to toe,
Lamentation flares, your cheeks melt with tears,
And the walls of the house are spattered with blood.
The porch and the court are crowded with ghosts
Streaming down to the undergloom. The sun is gone
From heaven, and an evil mist spreads over the land.”
20.387-392

Corporations

Corporations
The highest court
in the land
proclaims them
individuals

not of flesh and blood
who bleed when cut

easily able
to pay off
billions
for frauds
exercised.

Thanks to Howard Johnson whose post inspired this poem.
