The Big Lie of Capitalism;

that we’re all moving up the escalator of Prosperity,

and that anyone can be Rich

thru their own hard work

and drive.

That being Wealthy doesn’t depend

on a Sea of Poverty on which

the Upper-crust can float.

(the scum always rises)

That being Rich does not depend

on a vast herd of Humanity

on which to fatten and feed

and a Planet to despoil & destroy

for an Economy built on Gluttony

& Greed.

That you can somehow be wealthy

without also being complicit

with the Violence & Oppression

that go hand in hand

with Prosperity

& making a Profit.
