Weaponized Freedom - Poem by Josephine DixonBanks

Wholesale democracy sold as retail
Freedom is incapacitated locked in jail
Liberty in the layaway without bail
War is the prostitute on the campaign trail

Democracy for sale-Democracy for sale
Weaponized free-enterprise, impeached democratized
Imperialism to no avail
Bi-partisan politicians pimping people’s entrails
Democracy for sale-Democracy for sale

Terrorism merchandised to the highest bidder
Political policy a bi-partisan stripper
Free-trade gets paid to get laid
Open door policy is the capitalist’s charade

Civil-War ain’t civil, just barbaric
Collateral casualties are esoteric
Crimes against humanity all so generic

Warmongers copulate war but never bemoan
They pledged alliance to the scull and bones

Democracy for sale—Democracy for sale
Weaponized free-enterprise, impeached democratized
Imperialism to no avail
Bi-partisan politicians pimping people’s entrails
