The Free Market

  1. A child for your cocoa, a bombing for your crude,
  2. Orangutan for cookies, plastic for seafood,
  3. Bananas for a penny, a landslide for your gold,
  4. A peasant for your coffee, your cellphone for a soul,
  5. Blood for your engagement, a graveyard for your heat,
  6. A blind eye for your lettuce, a famine for your meat,
  7. Inferno for your blue jeans, an earthquake for your grill
  8. A sinkhole for your water, enough to make us ill.
