compassionate capitalism 101.

stemming the loss

dripping red
arterial spray

dripetty-drip

amidst anaesthetised shades
of souls once alive

now
dancing under pale moonlight

pausing only for cauterisation
sterilisation
of too many wounds

the
dripetty-drip ceases

consciences lobotomised

and as it has been
and as it is now
and as it may be

the
numb faces

tango deeper
into the hollowness

the cacophonous void

now
signed and sealed

of deals done

and
souls sold on
profitable leases.
