Blood Money

This is how the world runs.

Green dollar bills – the sin of privilege
that few do eschew, but keep to their profits.
Money is their birthright to protect as they see fit
even earned off the backs of many a pillaged.
The Bill is blood profit off the weak,
feeding these who earn far too more in a week.
Blood money is oppression, the quiet segregation
made to remake their nascent congregation.

Green dollar bills are the silent accumulation
of centuries of oppression by an evil racial nation.
So twisted is this law of survival of the fittest
that the nation of man is ever so diminished.
Blood Money builds on the backs of the desperate
short of hope or aid that grow so desolate.
This is the weapon more murderous than arms
that shackles the world in rule under their terms.
