Hungry Addition! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

one plus one plus one,
equals a socialistic rebellion...
minus two,
equals their profit margin.

'in God we trust'
stamped on our foreheads...
the Bill Of Rights
lashed into our backs...

another spot on the assembly line,
a pair of boots without a tongue.
another position vacant,
cheap sex without a smoke!

unemployment line, or jail time.
lawyers and well paid judges.
when one plus one plus one,
sets an empty plate on a barren table!
