The Price Of A Cup Of Coffee

THE PRICE OF A CUP OF COFFEE


YOU,
THE PUBLIC,
ARE AMAZING,
LAZY,
GAZING,
AT THE PRICE LIST,
SUCH A HIGH COST,
CAPITALIST IDEALS,
NEVER LOST,
PAYING LOVINGLY,
THROUGH THE NOSE,
TO THOSE,
RUBBING HANDS IN GLEE,
TO SEE,
THE HERD,
UNHEARD,
MOVE GENTLY ALONG,
SINGING THEIR SONG,
PAYING LOVINGLY,
THROUGH THE NOSE,
TO THOSE,
WHOSE FRANCHISE FUN,
A CUPPA GLORY.
ONE OF LIFE'S,
MALEVOLENT STORIES.

YOU SHEEP,
SO MEEK,
WHO LIKE TO KEEP,
THE PARTY GOING,
THE SORROW GROWING,
SUCH SMALL COST,
NOT SUCH A LOSS,
FOR SUCH HUGE PROFIT.


THE GAUL OF IT,
WHERE THE WEST,
EXPLOITS THE WORLD,
WHERE FUTURES LOST
TO THE UNBORN CHILD,
WHERE THE SHEEP,
PAY THROUGH THE NOSE,
TO THOSE,
TO KEEP,
THE THIRD WORLD,
MEEK
THEY LAY,
SLAUGHTERED IN POVERTY,
DENIED,
OVERLOOKED,
PROFITING NOT,
NOT ONE JOT,
FROM YOUR STUPIDITY.
