Economics

 

This imperatively imparted knowledge

 

This so-called apparent benefit to the scholarly mind

 

-to a decent life

 

This invisible influence on material happiness

 

Golden joy and glittering pleasure

 

Rotting unsightly ignorance

 

Dissolving selfless features

 

It’s praised

 

Its outline is a bloated, immobile casing

 

An existence comparable to the queen termite

 

A being which must be drug from cranny to cranny

 

To escape just intentions

 

It feeds and grows and collects its worshipers

 

Disguises its godless, misshapen expression

 

As an all-powerful, all-natural science

 

As if the Lord created coins on the 8th day

 

And debt for the “selfless sinners” on the 9th

 

The air not quite inhalable by all

 

The punishment impending when you fall

 

The mortar which creates the isolating wall

 

On one side is a debtor’s jail

 

Where all good men go when they fail
