Served with a Silver Spoon

Violence begets violence
in the streets,

and the fools are pulled
by puppet strings

to create distractions
of division on the ground

while the fat cats sit
perched in ivory tower splendor,

laughing at the rubes
who get taken to the cleaners

for a brainwash session
that leaves their minds open for control;

each pawn serves perfectly
as an easier pushover than the last,

and the cast
of marks are methodically maneuvered

to make damn sure
that the house continues to win

while profiteering off the delusions
perpetrated by controlled media propaganda

that shoves thirty second soundbite madness
down the throat of every chump begging to be gagged.
