    The corporation says that profits are high
    Where are these jobs that make these profit fly

    Prison.

    They create more laws
    To trap more workers
    The government reduces more schools.
    That ensures the prison population.
    They bring on the false hope.
    That makes some sells their dope.

    The prison systems advertise openly.
    Cheap labor. Right here. Right here.
    Bring your products any day.
    And stamp the goods made in the USA.

    IB mmm. Micro what. Victoria who… to name a few
    They use the inmate to manufacture their goods.

    Corporation profits are high.
    Modern day plantation
    Real people lives.

    The 13th amendment said they could.
    Force the one imprisons, to make their goods.
    Amerika a Pena colony
    Advertise this fact proudly.

    Companies laid people off. Left and right
    Because. They don’t want to pay them right.
    They say that minimum wage is too high.
    They use this as an alibi.

    The one they laid off. Now hungry and scare
    Get to work for them again in these jails.

    The corporation says that the profits are soaring.
    Adding it all up. Laborers. At low cost.
    Victim of the money signed. In God we trust.

    In some States
    1st time stealing a loaf of bread.
    Will get you 3 months in jail.
    2nd time stealing a loaf of bread.
    Will get you 3 years in jail plus probation if you make bail.
    You steal bread for the 3rd time
    20 years. Straight. No bail. No probation. No lie.

    The 3-stike laws have been pasted.
    Now, they guarantee skill workers, to
    Do the task.

    The corporation profits are soaring
    Money in their pocket lives is stolen.
    Creating situation to put people in jail.
    Making more laws, some with out bail.

    What it comes down to. Hot off the press
    They are the one that cause all the stress.

    I am not blind. I can plainly see.
    The camouflage. That is slavery.

    given the current job market and the current corporate disposition towards workers, prison isn't the only place where slave labor is expected!

    And the congregation says..."AMEN"

    I feel you.....Big Ups!

    If it's one thing I love more than the truth.....to hear someone speak that truth in the most uncompromising fashion possible

    Keep it "Hot"......Never give 'em a break..cause they been breaking ours for centuries....."Nuff Praise"

    Exploitation at it’s best…
    And the expose` captured so effortlessly by the
    Hands of a poet to be revered…

    Your work is always so thought provoking
    And prolific!

    And yes…your work?…….Truth in it’s purest form!
