Bananas And Dollars

They said it was

Inevitable,

It was written

In the book,

Big business

Raping and pillaging,

Government lackeys

Out of whack,

Wars, wars, wars,

They admitted

It seemed wrong

But they accepted it

Because it was written,

Maybe that’s what

Monkeys are for,

A mirror to show us

How stupid we are,

Both like their crotches

Licked,

Their egos tricked

And both will do crazy things

For a banana or a dollar.

Smart Phone

I looked into getting

A smart phone once,

In  Canada with one

Of the highest rates

In the world,

I was pissed to learn

I was forwarded to

A foreign country,

Waiting half an hour

Listening to crappy music

Waiting for my turn,

After hours of stupidity

And silly situations,

I wondered,

If they do this to

Prospective customers,

What do they do to one

With a problem.
