Assisted Suicide

Assisted Suicide

The gas chambers
of consumer culture
need no Zyklon B
when the unworthy
mass of humanity
can be dispensed
via unlimited usury
applied with impunity
and extended in perpetuity.

Soon the children of the dead
will be saddled with their debt
and when they crawl the walls
and choke their last breath
their children will take the saddle
and be ridden  by their "betters",
the inheritance of fealty
all debtors owe to creditors.

"The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred ready to ride them legitimately by the grace of God."

-- Thomas Jefferson
