Calling themselves by reputable names, the jig's up if they're known as "oppressors"
but that's what they were and ever will be, our earth's menacing, wicked, aggressors.
Some cooler more generic names also describe this hell-bent bunch
and should enrage us all to rise up in arms, not forever stay out-to-lunch.
There's plutocrats, multinationals, megalomaniacs galore
systemic power brokers and ever-so-much more.
Corporate-owned Republi-crats and kleptocrats to boot --
the same old vile oppressors in the same old vile cahoot.
set to conquer their hypnotized masses, ever dividing the common hordes.
With corporate-stream "news" to fixate the folks of a "markedly lower station"
to hook them forever on healthcare or race, religion or orientation.
With stockpiles of hot-button issues for us to argue, scream and fight,
to tear us apart, to keep us at odds, in our old internecine plight.
To keep us forever in the dark, their sole mission's to spellbind "the rabble"
via bogus celebrity scandals and smoldering bling-bling babel.
