The god of this world

Two Golden Calves

Daniel 3: 10 – 11 "You, O king, have made a decree that everyone who hears the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, [and] psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, shall fall down and worship the gold image; and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.” ....................Matthew 4: 8 – 9: Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me."

“Satan runs Wall Street!”

“One day, the poor will have nothing left to eat BUT the rich!”

Signage rants scream out silently
of a protest impolitely not covered/ignored by the
limp-prick-no-help-from-Viagra media:

after this year’s demise of Gil Scott(Prophet)-Heron,
selectively missing smashed heads, broken ribs and cameras;
mace and pepper spraying demonstrating innocents
(save for You Tube witness),

as the same actors who sent our country over a ditch
and like GM, instead of graciously building in the US,
after research into greener cars and better batteries:

their next manufacturing plants (and jobs) will be…in China!
(Our real benefactors’ address...)

If this was a “Christian Nation”:
it would not be based on oblation
and worship of the Sino-Phoenician god Mammon.

“One Market Under God,”
opined by Thomas Frank that
the market “had become deity,” and
the wealthy high priests of its altar.

One lawmaker on MSNBC without blink,
falter or apology stated:
“I can’t feed my family on just $400,000/year
(after expenses for his business!),

and God bless, Bill O’Rielly may QUIT TV if he
has to pay one penny above the rate before the
1st Bush tax cuts in 2001 at
Clinton-era levels…when we HAD a surplus!

Warren Buffet is their reluctant saving grace,
and public enemy #1, as he threatens their fun
by pulling down the veil between the outer court
and the “unholy of un-holies”:

- pin-striped Lear jets,

- five mansions and million dollar
New York Penthouse apartments,

- hedge fund managers’ daily cocaine habits

- and visits to the “Emperor’s (prostitution) Club”
expensed as “market research!”

Like modern-day Marie Antoinette’s,
they berate the frustrated, “tired and poor”
hordes, camped out “huddled masses yearning to breathe free”
(and be employed) with “let them eat cake!”

Like Arab springs, they light the candles for an
American fall and soldier winter that their best
Creel Commission public relations firms could not handle!

In my dénouement, I restate (with chagrin from the 99%):

“Satan runs Wall Street!”

“One day, the poor will have nothing left to eat BUT the rich!”
