So I just wrote up this poem (very quickly - it's a first draft.) It's a reflection on this economic phenomenon of corporate power and the ceonsequential harm it does.
I hope it resonates with you. - bert
Empty Store FrontsStores closed down.
I see them.
Empty store fronts,
All the capital,
It's being gobbled up!
By massive corporations.
Wealth conglomerated at tippy top.
Capital and labor markets,
(... and p.s. - please don't shop at Wal-Mart, and/or similar mega-stores.)
(p.p.s. see related post at OlyBlog: The Normal Course of Progress?)
