Poetry: “Corporations Aren’t People” (from November 2011)

Corporations aren’t people

They don’t have a mind

They don’t deserve the tax breaks

That politicians find

Corporations aren’t people

They can’t go to jail

When they screw the people

By what they do or fail

Corporations aren’t people

They don’t deserve to vote

Or influence our leaders

With millions in bank notes

Corporations have no heart

Nor compassion, that is true

Their actions seldom help the many, but the very few

I don’t care what [Mitt] Romney thinks

For selfish corporate policies

Have brought us to the brink.
