Fiscal Filth

Shaikh Ali Abu Talib

You see, you can’t really possess real estate even if you don’t take out a bank loan. Still, generation after generation is chained to the grindstone trying to buy a an overly priced dwelling with a high interest rate bank loan. The 30 year mortgage is all that you really own.

Shaikh Ali Abu TalibReal wealth is not gold, silver, or gems.

Real wealth is not money moved by the whims

of market magicians… lenders who hoard

what belongs to The People as gifts from The Lord.

 

Love’s the real wealth, and compassion is precious.

But interest filled finance makes human hearts callus.

Love Vs. Greed… the battle still rages…

soaring high prices… debt sinking wages.

 

Dollars in gold, digits, paper, or plastic,

makes some people spastic…

damned enthusiastic…

ready to do what’s diabolically drastic…

morally flipping for money like they were gymnastic.

 

The Banks loan folks the same money they vowed to secure

with high rates of interest using greed as a lure.

This is fiscally wrong, and spiritually impure.

Debt is a disease, and this is sure not the cure.

 

The same money folks deposited… their taxes insures.

But the bank loans back their money like financial saboteurs…

laden with interest… an-in-debt-we-trust-hook…

greed baited, folks bite it… bamboozled… then took.

 

Cannibalistic financial knavery…

induced wholesale volunteer slavery…

knee jerked to react… un-hep to the fact

that they just signed a non-negotiable Faustian Pact…

The Illusion of affluence is designed to fail…

working fifty plus hours for affluence to no avail…

so your freedom’s impaled…

since the fast track derailed…

the illusion that never was… naively bewailed.

 

You see,

you can’t really possess real estate even if you don’t take out a bank loan.

Still, generation after generation is chained to the grindstone

trying to buy a an overly priced dwelling with a high interest rate bank loan.

The 30 year mortgage is all that you really own.

 

The feds own the land

and the job owns the man

and The God you claim to trust in

hates this vile fiscal plan.

 

And the truly dirt poor

for sure can’t endure

though there’s food and a cure,

because mercy’s not money,

and love’s more like manure

when King Midas regulates

filthy financial fallaciousness that only greed stimulates.

 

Folks starve to death for lack of an overly inflated bill.

While fat, hoarding-non-workers eat up their fill.

What a foul wicked scheme played out till this day.

You don’t get what you earn, when there’s no money to pay.

 

Folks’ bankrolls are blown

because they took out a loan

in good faith and in trust

from a financial system that’s not owned by us.

 

Plus… the cash that should flow is not freely flowing.

Because they get rich off the interest that keeps growing and growing.

Thus they reap the fruits of your labor without reaping or sowing.

 

The corporate un-human hoarders

with no spiritual faith and no national borders,

refuse to invest… to clean up their mess…. that financially molests…

the rest of us unless… We The People Of The East And We The People Of The West… work for slave wages, without any rest.

 

So now our money that we deposited in their bank for safe keeping

is owned by an un-trustworthy system that sows not but keeps reaping.

And what’s more, the money they claim we legally owe

is more than what’s issued to make the currency flow.

 

In other words, there’s never enough dough currently in circulation

to pay the interest laden debt incurred by a wage enslaved nation.

 

So we’re chained to the grindstone in each generation

serving false prophets who profit from fiscal abomination…

a hypnotized consumeristic golden calf worshiping congregation

whose spiritual, social, and political motivation

is other than serving The Lone Lord Of Creation.
