The New Corporate Plan

Today I saw a homeless man
Scrounging … from a garbage can.
I really do not know or care
If… he sleeps here or over there.

The city should keep him … out-of-sight
He’s not my problem …that’s a city fight.
But what the city does not know
He carries his demons where they do not show.

he was a 'full-time' working man.
When they sent him to a distant land.
The terrible things that he went through
Would break the hearts of me and you.

The Government taught him how to kill a man,
women and children. That was 'their' plan.
When he was brought home today
He reported for work. To make his next payday.

I met him at the factory door
'you-don't, work-here anymore”
because his job has been sent away.
There will be no-money for him today.

Sorry! But all my jobs are filled.
I don’t care how he pays his bills.
I even stole his wife while he was away
Now with even his children he can not play.

The poor families
of those he killed
Are working his job
To pay my corporate…- thrills.

I can’t worry about him
……Don’t you see?
I am far too busy
Looking out for me.

I don’t have the time to make things right
If I am late I will miss my Flight.
I need to sell my car before I go
I’m training a new crew in MEXICO.
