Starbucks Has Stolen Worker Dreams - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

STARBUCKS CEO makes $9,600 an hour
rants a pitiful $15 an hour minimum wage
is steep too high starbucks cannot afford it

been years since I drank coffee in Starbucks!
kinda sticks in throat reeks of crime injustice!
wear a social conscious not tailored prestige suit!

tall starbucks CEO is just
another CEO on prize scum list
time a few more Americans

an whole world wake up
realize sold American Dream
mammoth wealth that cannot

be spent in dozens of lifetimes
purchased on pale backs of poverty
worker oppression is not a dream

it is a nightmare!
