A Christmas treat to the system

A bombardment of truth under the missile-toe

A message to the cowards that kiss up to you 

A reward for your administration 

You truly deserve my vindication 

Only a capitalist would be appreciative 

No thanks given for the classes you created

The people you’ve separated 

The extortion you’ve accommodated 

The lives you’ve destroyed 

How you’ve broken the employed


A Christmas treat from the system 

Hell’s gift to  earth 

Corruption shimmied it’s way to society 

Presented us with leaders who can’t lead

Preachers who can’t preach

But instead sell "holy seed”

People with dreams

Of growing money trees

After all only the rich 

Get to eat

Watch the system dance with elvish feet

A merry fuck you for your Christmas treats
