That's Rich



If you want to be filthy
rich then invent a way
for people to unsee
what we have done,
which is to aim desire at wealth.
Market an oblivion that can coexist
with identity.  Sell a semi-credible
escape from complicity.
Be your best customer.
Our society is based on taking
from others so you can have
more than you need.
Making them love you for it
is the coup de grâce.
