PIG PEOPLE
Pig people
An insult to pigs
Make that people people
Snorting, drooling, elbowing
Farting openly
Drunk with Big Gulps and Super Size Chili Fries
I got mine!
Bitch on Board
Whoever winds up with the most toys wins
Back off, asshole
SUV driving latte swilling cool-chanting cigarette sucking television controlled
Want Monster
Gimme Monster
Need Monster
Grunt Monster
I got mine!
Designer ethos
Hate music
Death movies
Protected by Smith & Wesson
Don't bother me, I'm eating
"Feeding" is more like it
Feeding on the swill and sludge pumped down your throats and into your eyes and ears
By the corpse-orations
Open wide, here comes another load!
Primed from birth for pop culture force-feeding
Corporate breast-kneading
Obedient nodding money bleeding
Bible-banging dumb screeding
Hypocritical hate deed-ing

Cool!
I hear your gut rumble
I see your brain fumble
To think of sex and food and food and sex
And occasionally sports or fingernails
Or your next tattoo

Oh, beautiful for spacious minds
And empty waves of brain
Say you want a revolution, well you know
Demographers changed the world
If you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother
They won.
