Corporations, Not People! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

corporations,
are not people.
democracy and plutocracy

are not the same thing.
equality doesnt come
with class structure....

and you cannot brutalize
citizens peacefully protesting
in a land that's really free!

promises dont feed hunger,
homeless doesnt mean worthless.
freedom doesnt invade other countries

for barrels of oil and back room deals.
poverty doesnt denote ignorance,
and lies never make the truth!

corporations are not people...
and the people have had enough!
