Capitalism, a Sonnet by Helen Moore‏

chemical Macaque             glaxosmithkline
roche       trepanned-brain Baboon

max factor eyes burning Cat       l’oreal

melting Reindeer, Polar Bear

but a bargain for mcdonalds –
Earth’s rainforests         slashed

nike         the evil empire’s goddess

in suits                    armani uniforms

a cocktail of intellect and greed
hellish stuff         they puppet us to need
