Rape Of The Poor - Poem by Eric Cockrell

working 32 hours a week,
minimum wage, no benefits...
to buy third world clothes
from minimum wage Walmart cashiers,
made by Asian children
in sweat shop conditions...
spend the change on
war raped, terror raped,
bomb raped, third world oil...
3.69 a gallon gasoline.

crinkled dollar bills...
'In God We Trust'!
