Food for Thought-I Rage Against the Halloween Machine

 

Slide4

The fear system is far from broken,
the costume markets are always open,
you’re going to die says the man on TV,
take these drugs, don’t wait and see,
a virus from Africa stalks our streets,
men in space suits scare ghosts in sheets,
arterial plaque and hemorrhagic fever,
between clips of a drunken Justin Bieber,
this is the Halloween you asked for,
standing at our front doors,
courtesy of the good people,
the ones you’d never suspect,
the military, industrial, pharmaceutical,
and costume complex.
