The Rape of Freedom

Hyenas skulked, yipping eerily in the darkness
Plotters gleeful had lit the fire; contriving, they lied and misled
Their men on the inside; the others they owned
They killed token watchmen and wrote “hands off !” as a law
Derivatives and cocaine and hookers
Billionaire makeup artists gussied garish faces in AAA pancake
Hyena fangs glinting victory in terrible darkness
They leered, they panted, they drooled
They chased, tripped and mounted in furious speed
Insatiable and frenzied they tore into her soft underbelly
The orgy of tooth and fang was universal
Pissing on her half eaten form left in Main Street
They laughed insanely, spotting the territory they owned
Marauders of the night in the land of the free
Selling lies, half truths and technicalities they skulked
Out-dancing the spotlight in the ballroom of smoke and mirrors
When the lie was exposed the truth ran panting in too late
They took more still; they still had men on the inside
Masters in the home of the brave
These clever Hyenas
Still they roam unfettered, past shuttered homes and businesses
Freedom lay bleeding and gutted, her dress shredded, meatless boney legs obscenely splayed

Artist's Description

This is another protest poem I wrote after watching a 60 Mins documentary about all major banks forging loan documents to foreclose on millions of homes. This is a companion to Dreadful Circus, A Coffee Dream, and When the Big Boys Forsake the Rules. My Newest painting Posterity and promise is also a protest to the bank robbers and wall street swindlers.
