The Swindle: Poetry

We have been conned 
into believing that life isn’t free
as if every single thing
on this Earth is born
with a dollar sign attached

The Swindle is equating
Pretense with Progress
to keep us pursuing dangling carrots
attached to fishing lines
held by people we never see

After all,
it isn't just a matter of
Who you know publicly,
but Who and What you know
behind closed doors.
