Win-win

Win-win depends on memory loss and
Popping that annoying, silly conscience
In a separate box. A back-scratch here;
A blackmail there; a hefty nudge corrective
And it’s good-to-go and woe-betide the
Upstart who won’t budge, for he will be
Selected as the fodder of complicity

Or maybe only seeming be

Defiance is an outward-bound publicity
To cover for duplicity when just obscene,
Behind the screen, a mutable compliance
Is the golden key to corporate prosperity,
For, lift the veil a level higher; there, the
Festival of liars seldom really disagrees
By need of mutual reliance for their
Profiteering power to succeed. Who has
The land, the water, herds and crops and
Energy is not the same as owns and takes;
That fakes the money and divides the honey
With the same ‘ole, shameless trickery –
But in the busy sphere of technocrats an
Enemy is only necessary inasmuch as it
Distracts.
