Shooting Words back at the Powerful
(for George Monbiot)
There can be no collateral damage when
kinetic activity gives an extraordinary rendition
that cleanses the stock of fraud and error
thus neutralising operatives in compounds that bulge
of stock not worth the full wage ending powerful
benefit units of asset classes who bake and shake
then mow the lawn causing bug splats. These are not
human capital they are illegal aliens whose neutraliser
will be crowned a completer.
