Extremely Fat Cats - Poem by Tom Higgins

It used to seem that 'The Company'
was in business for you and me,
but things have changed and now it seems,
like that was only ever in our dreams,
and these days all they strive to do,
is take everything just for the few.
So, will the world ever be freed,
from the curse of corporate greed?
They thrive on an almighty lie,
that says that we are all gaining by,
the actions of these monstrous beasts,
that stride the planet on which they feast,
taking all from those who have no way,
to defend their lands, or to have a say,
in how their resources are to be used,
instead we are all merely abused,
to fulfil the wants of the greediest men,
who will wreck Mother Earth, and then,
use their wealth to maintain their power,
whilst all the populations of the planet cower!
