They aren't people
A person who works for one
Might care about you
But the Corporation
Doesn't make it easy
The Corporation
Doesn't make friends
The Corporation
Makes fake beauty
If it will sell
No
The Corporation
Makes money

The Corporation
Doesn't even care
Who gets the money
Or if money is
What they need
Corporations are machines

What need
In human lives
Is filled by
The Corporation?
Is it a god to you?
Do you want to give it
Your soul?
The Corporation
Needs souls
Souls who sell
And the Corporation
Needs souls
Who need

The Corporation
Wants to take your soul
And your money
Hard-earned
Working for
The Corporation
The Corporation is a machine

The Corporation
Needs you to need
It needs your soul
Do you want to sell your soul
To Coca-Cola?
To SBC?
To the insurance industry
Who wants your soul
In exchange
For your fear for your soul?

Why do you want to offer your mind body soul
In exchange for something to need?
This is your choice
Free will
Choice choice choice choose choose choose
The Corporation
Or your soul

(If you need to give
And you need to give
Give to God
The other god
The only God
This is your choice)

I enjoy reading your poems, but I do not agree with this poem, corporations do not have wants, a corporation may be similar to god, in that it does not account for anything outside of its world, it is its own world. I think this one needs tweaking, it misses the point, because it displays nothing but anger and emotion through scare tactics.

Wasn't the church the original corporation?

Corporations are the hellhounds of the occult hunters who aim to butcher this world. Their records are written with the blood of their victims whose ripped flesh rots between their fangs and talons. Their fake beauty is merely a vision inflicted on the blind who are unable to distinguish day from night. You expressed it prettier in this poem. Thank you for creating and sharing. Take care,

Dear Jen,

I am soooo grateful that you have highlighted this, and that also in this very powerful way. You are so true that coporations have commodify not only us, our lives but also future generations. We have been enslaved and trapped to be away from God. We human kinds have lost the collective purpose of life and are gradually loosing our contact with God.

Thanks Jen!

I'll bet a lot of guys sell their souls to Viagra. I've heard it's a company on the rise.
