Give The Dog A Bone - Poem by Theorem The Truth Serum

give the dog a bone

let him come into your home
watch him beg and whimper
for some food and some clothes
give him a job and pay him
in bones

give the dog a bone
because he will survive alone
give the dog a bone

you can pay him less
come now put your morals to the test
give him seven give him nine
but never more than ten
because the rest is mine

give the dog a bone

let him work and then send him home
he'll come back but his cover was blown
misers prevail running this slave trail

give the dog a bone

    A lovely subversive poem! The sociological/political implications here are subtle and right on point. This stands in the tradition of good revolutionary art.
