The Masters Have Decided

the masters have decided
that we are too soft in the middle
that our fat-clogged arteries
lack the stamina to keep the blood flowing
to keep the heart pumping
to keep the dollars rolling

the masters have decided
that we must toughen up
stop sucking at our mammy’s tit
suck in that gut
carry that rifle, buck that bale
say thank you please

the masters have decided
we have all been bad children
go to your room, stand in the corner
no more habeaus corpus for you, sonny
no more health care until
you learn to eat your carbon and lead
now say thank you sir
