Snip
© October 3, 2007, Roy Stucky

Give and take is culture.
We've been told to care.
But honor's now devoured
By suits in captain chairs.

Profit names our sole desire,
Charge the suckers twice.
Business needs good liars.
Only fools are nice.

Snip the social fabric,
Cut compassion's cord.
Dollar breeding frenzy
Spawns its own reward.
Snip the social fabric,
Turn and walk away.
Who needs country bumpkins
Who can't afford to pay?

Find the ones in trouble,
Find the ones in pain.
Prices hike to double
For clients in our chains.
Find someone who's helpless,
Find someone who's lost.
Margins are fantastic -
The weak pay triple cost.

Snip the social fabric,
Cut compassion's cord.
Dollar breeding frenzy
Spawns its own reward.
Snip the social fabric,
Turn and walk away.
Who needs country bumpkins
Who can't afford to pay?
