Anything For A Buck - Poem by Stanley Cooper

In our “anything for a buck” society
We’re off the path of sane sobriety
To satisfy our dollar quest
We’ve lionized the plastic breast

The macho “ever-ready” need of males
That they must always be as hard as nails
Fills the wallets of drug providers
And all those C E O insiders

We’ve all been brainwashed, but enough’s enough
Why can’t we join together to fight their stuff
They’ve demonized us with their thought controls
We’ve lost true values, and sold our souls
