Refugees, Brownfields, Dark Pools, Acid Rain as “Game On”

They are high fliers
that mile high club
bellying up to the fleeing
masses, TV ticker tape
billions for sports, a million ways
to capitalize, dredging
refugee camps, money
owed before boats bank
on stolen EU land
the Americans are
the dumbest rulers

the children cough, air
atomized with greed
sweat and tears monetized
each million indentured
to us, consumer queens
kings of the fossil drip
they are serial numbers
rotten French duplicity,
rolled ideas from Germany
the continent filled
with Rothschilds’ slaves

old women, vomit
terrorists in the headlines
flagrant felons
those central bankers
philandering, drawing
plans for death, in or out
third world, fourth, fantastic
lands of jewels, strategic
water for the whites
coltan for the hipsters
soya Solient Green
electricity generated
kilowatts of dying souls

freeing each stitch
until we unravel
they bray for software
sleep with joy sticks
drones, nanoshares
they hedge on the miscarriages
floating on the heart
of darkness

propaganda is orgasm
millions marketing
a hedge on the big lie
spin and flop, shadows
red flags/false flags and checkered
flag, the stories are
the rot of brains
these celebrity shits
outsourcing brains
they push and push
copulate with the witch of money
capitalism, cronies, culling
cults fighting for power
junking minds, trashing
tribes, emptiness 24/7

flotsam, people, children
from Etruria, Sudan, Syria
their mujaheddin
political tools, black lives
do not matter, the population
frozen in fear, great popping
off at the mouth, Yankee, Stars
and Bars, the end game is JP Morgan
Chase first play, 3.0, last play
the blood is pennies, the shelter
paper mache dollars, pesos, shekels

stay tuned, flood
intestines molding
Red Bull, Monster
the world now a desperate
ditched superbowl
bouncing balls, typhoons
fleeing fragile billions
so five percent of the world
jingles-jangles into mush
flopping lies, fleeting
history, inverse-reverse
only PR makes our reality

stay tuned, as we burn
