POEM: "Speculation"


Ever wonder how it is the uber
the rich crooks (and the apples of their eyes)
the bootleggers, smugglers, top capitalists
corrupt officials, corporate dumpsters et cetera
begin to see all their loot was a lifestyle choice

and their special manna was getting away with it
just when they should’ve seen the end was coming

socked away the money and gotten everybody out
like before the axe cracks through the fancy door

before the shouting and blood splatter on the carpet
before the black boots still have their motors running
and instead of sunbathing on a pretty beach in Thailand
suddenly there are very different lifestyle choices to make?
