escape route

this q-tip in my ear 
how did it get here
some corp called
unilever? how
did we get here?
i was pickin
cotton now it’s
in my ear
the plunder of
a continent
for soaps and
cheap inputs
and MARKETS
how? how
did we get here?
on park avenue
the loot piled up
quite nicely
tailored
as africans
we labored
for that park
avenue view
history
it makes me dizzy
with loss and things
set before i
showed up -
how did we
get here??
i need a
drink
a shrink
a backup
plan and
escape route
even tho
this beast will
follow you across
the globe and
every pocket
