net zero costs too much,
no net means nothing to clutch,
we need to hope
that our children can cope.

hope not for the grace,
never yearn for water's taste,
stomachs don't grumble,
life's woes all tumble.

criminal enterprise gain,
turns marks insane,
worship the oligarch,
old doctrine was lame.

wheat fields burn,
it's oligarchs turn,
poor five dollar supporters
are told that they ought'er
sell their children to earn.

pledge allegiance to the worst,
cruelty, malice and the curse,
deny the truth while it consumes
the weakest of the bairns.

our land may be burning,
the solution in our making,
or the results that will come
will put us all under the ground.

no argument from the dead
