That is, the people really rule
Is proffered as foregone conclusion
Because they taught it you in school.
You took it when you graduated
Which helped those who’d accumulated
The money used to buy your vote
So that you’d never rock their boat.
If people really ruled, democracy
By now’d have penetrated work
Where we are slaves. It’s that bulwark
That testifies to our plutocracy.
So what the hell you gonna do?
Go home, and tube it, pop a brew?
