To Serve Man


they stand aloof, commentators of our world

the work they display defining where we stand

(and often leads the way

to where we would go)

their position, self-declared, to show what can't be seen

yet powerless, save by the will of whom they lead,

they exist by grace of patrons, who in turn exist on death

careless that those they seek to govern

are lost to fund their cause

building their castle on the bodies of their kind

they care more for the job of working

than they do for the work of serving



In frustration over the attempts of various 'artists'

to argue legitimate reason to continue to receive

funding from the cigarette companies so they

may continue to 'serve' society.
