Dance, Monkey, Dance

Can you smell the opportunity
For effortless despair?
Dance, monkey, dance
For serfdom’s in the air

And the neoliberal crazy
Isn’t going anywhere.

Squeeze the pips
Fill the coffers
Get on board
Join the race
Make an offer
To the bottom

Going long on
Platitude

Get up on those
Bleeding toes

Now perform in
Pirouettes

How the wretches dance
The song of servitude.

Oh, make a little effort to
Appreciate the debt
We brought about.

The stage is set
From above
Now twist and shout
For Daddy’s profit
Like you really love it.
