Monergocapitalism by Sofia Kioroglou


Chained to a system
of monergocapitalism
any pleas for disentanglement
would don me the regalia of a regressive

Subsumed under the economic will
everything must be ground down
enslaved to the plasma screen TV
the human mind leveraged for profit maximization

Human existence must stop being a drag
on a system where ethics are obstacles
to the augmentation of profit margins
where humans are masters and not cogs in the ecomonic machine
