Augustus Cesar, Central Bank


With royal scepter to reign on high
With jewel shunned crown to marvel the eye
With imperial estate on which we stand
With pledge allegiance made by human hand
With sovereign boarders that secure us all
And the mightiest & noblest revelry call
Profits still declare just wars
As Empire still fills our stores
This commerce serves the monarch's will
More effective than the written Bill
For senates bend & congresses crack
When they succumb to the matrix within the Law of Attract
This is from what the August draws power
From this chaos he raises his psychological tower
Each level a bureaucratic labyrinth of code
Masonry skills raise this mighty abode
This castle built caught up in the air
Forces all below to stop & stare
In shock & awe we can't look away
With thoughts & intents this cost we pay
This tax imposed doth inflate dependence
It's collectors thus intellectually commend this
Then the King trickles down enough to make need
Promoting competition that only educates greed
Thus the guppies squabble within the tank
Never observing how low they sank
Beneathe their king,
Sir Central Bank
All hail his rule on which justice sits
Kiss his sceptor that divides & splits
Making this kingdom a land of peoples
Under penalties that protect us from our own evil
Jesus declared us 'Pay the Tax'
When we choose Cesar ride our backs
In this we serve our monarch well
In all the goods we buy & sell
We will raise our king to the highest rank
His royal highness,
Lord Central Bank

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
