Some window 

cleaning accounts 

that don’t 

pay: 

AT&T 

Verizon 

Fred Meyer. 

When I 

ran it 

past a 

collection agency 

they smiled 

& said 

their hands 

were tied. 

A fundamental 

definition of 

Fascism is 

a marriage 

between government 

& corporate 

power. 

In today’s 

world things 

have gone 

a step 

further. 

Corporate power 

has divorced 

government & 

is collecting 

alimony. 

The courts 

are its 

mistress. 

The military 

is its 

body guard. 

The population 

is placated 

with misinformation 

junk food 

frivolous toys 

& sick 

entertainment. 

It’s highly 

unlikely that 

things will
get better.
