The elegant emblem of evil,
the top drawer of the U.S. social "elite",
eagerly awaits the refurbishing
of the Fountainbleau Hotel at the cost
of a mere billion dollars and sees
no connection from their hideous wealth
to the slaughter of Native Americans,
the capture and enslavement of Africans,
and the worldwide corporate rape
and exploitation known as "free" trade,

in which their current patriarchs
(and grasping ancestors)
swagger across the globe in search
of greedy local leaders to buy off
so they can instigate genocide
and divide and conquer in order to provide
not only fabulous returns for their investors,
but the diamond tennis bracelets
and Aston Martins so de rigeur

for the depraved and indifferent spectacle
of debutante balls held up to lesser beings
as the very pinnacle of deserving virtue,
which take place in obscene showcases
and tableaux such as the Fountainbleu
in a racist parade of resources
appropriated from the abattoirs
they have made of most of the Earth.
