I guess

if you wanna become famous
ya gotta sign on
to a bunch of horseshit

Call it the Oprah Factor
as that’s when it hit
cruising speed

Gotta support the pillars
that hold up the tent of
The Greatest Show On Earth

Like, uh, the intrinsic misogeny
{not to mention limited biological
understanding) found in middle eastern
tree sagas complete with
flammable shrubbery

a belief that if you get up
early enough
you can change
the way the world works

anything that allows
the owners – your owners –
to go on owning

only the compliant
become famous
in this system

Did I say anything
about great?
Circus Maximus, yes but
with a word from the sponsors
at least five times every hour

the invisible they that holds
nearly all real power
