Garbage
(The Manifest Destiny of Wage Slaves)

We,
LABOR,
are the captive source
of Profit,
which reproduces itself
even while bound pitifully
in plastic credit card chains
and sub-poverty level wages.

We are
outsourced human "resources"
capitalized human "capital"
useless eaters
human weeds
chattel
cattle
contemptible
life unworthy of life
transformed
into simply a cost of doing business
disposable, inanimate objects
commodities
bodies
crammed tightly into railroad cars
hurtling headlong into the economic abattoir
being prepared for us by KBR
via the Zyklon-B of debt.
