THE MASTER CRIMINAL, by            
First Line: No prison bars confine him. Rather, king
Last Line: From scars the master craven stalks the world.
Subject(s): Capitalism


No prison bars confine him. Rather, king
And president outweighed, will bow and yield.
He games in human lives; the battlefield
His bond investment, he is keen to fling
Our staunch Americans into the ring
When nations vent their jealous hates. His shield
Is wet with woman's tears; his heart is steeled
To all but gold and bloody profiting.
If you who proudly boast of liberty
Within the state applaud the flags unfurled
In Wall Street mire, you share his infamy.
Above his guns the cries of millions hurled
Against Hell's furnace, rise to Heaven! And free
From scars the master craven stalks the world.
