After 8

(Appetites of the elite)

Americans rich
have a terrible itch
it’s children they love1
breakfast, lunch and dinner
some like ’em fat,
some like ’em thinner
they are so nutritious
even quite delicious
alive or dead
done or raw
Consuming kids
can’t be against the law.2
When they aren’t whining
then they’re dining
In executive session
teaching twens and toddlers
carnivorous lessons
raising the drinking age3
preying while praying
feigning public outrage
Irish once grew on the Emerald Isle
Feeding English nobility vile.4
Americans youth on corn syrup fed
Sustaining the wealthy,
especially in bed.

  1. The demise of Jeffrey Epstein also distracts from the chronic violence done to children all over the world by the people who run the US Empire. Child prostitution is the illicit side of Disney’s commerce with teen “stars”. Most schools are institutions of mental incarceration and physical abuse. Children are killed regularly by US military forces throughout the world. []
  2. One Jeffrey Dahmer (1960 – 1994) was found to have regularly killed children to eat them, a form of nutrition that he believed quite normal. []
  3. During the US war against Vietnam, the voting age in the US was lowered from 21 to 18. The argument was that if a lad is old enough to die for his country, he is old enough to vote. Meanwhile the drinking age has been raised to 21, so that Americans are old enough to vote and kill but not allowed to relieve themselves of the trauma of pointless elections and their own acts of vicious terrorism against the ordinary people of the “non-white world”. In 1971, the 26th amendment to the US Constitution lowered the voting age from 21 to 18. 1984 National Drinking Age Act compelled states to raise the age to 21 or forfeit 10% of federal highway subsidies.

  4. Jonathan Swift, A Modest Proposal, (originally published in 1729, 290 years ago) suggested that the English landlords, who were starving the Irish for their own agro-business profits, could consume Irish children as food. []
