Late Stage Capitalism


"Late stage"

They say sagely

At the freshest outrage

Of our Mammonist Age

The thought, that like

The setting sun


Race is run

But like late stage cancer

I answer

Is not on the verge of death

Or on its last breath

Late stage capitalism's

Quite alive

Unleashed it strives

And spreads and thrives

Late stage capitalism's

Doing fine

The thing that's dying

Is your soul 

And Mine
