Allegiance

Measureable Oaths

amflag

I pledge allegiance to the yield
Of the casino states of America
And to the deposit for which it stands
One market
 underhand
With deception and deductions
 for all
 I allege malfeasance by the cronies
From the greedy snakes of America
And to the sewers from whence they came
One notion
Under the table
With lipstick & jaundice
For all

I dred convenience from the scam
Of the united flakes of America
And from the shysters who rake it in
One crap game
Up yours
With bailouts & B.S.
For all

I hedge dependence on the banks
Of the gangster states of America
And to the stench
Towards which they flow
One stick-up
Under Bush
With larceny & libations
For all

I bled a legion for the con
On the dissipated dreams of America
And to the system which rakes it in
One weapon
Underground
With money & madness
For all

I bet Ephesians that the Dow
Would float the waxy wings of America
And to the Kool-Aid which we all drink
One myth
Freshly torched
With programs and prescriptions
For all

I led a season for the thugs
Of the “I got mine” mantra of America
And to the cards which are clearly marked
One sucker
Every minute
With options & earnings
For me
