indentured by debt
buy unpaid wages,
made stupid by law,
castrated by lies.
"we" are not big enough to profit.

UGH!!! That's fucking horrible. And yet, who am I to judge? It's better to let YOU decide if poetry—good or bad—has a place on the I, Anonymous blog. Read the entire poem (if you can stomach it) and then vote in our policy-making Anony-Poll that will ultimately decide whether poetry will ever again be allowed in this hallowed space!
(Oh, and while you're there, pretend that you care, and submit a rant or confession with flair. IF YOU DARE. Mon frere!)
