Artificial Mint

Are we gone today?
Are we going to pay
with our pocket lint,
artificial mint?

What's your capital plan?
Pull it out at the end,
during your smooth stint,
artificial mint?

Put a face to it
all camera-lit
We're buying free rent
for artificial mint.

Only have to print
stretch it til it fits
Tape, ink, reddish tint
artificial mint.

Rubber-stamp, it's magic x4

Throw a class war fit
struggle against wit
scabs will pay for it,
artificial mint

You can organise,
but you can't disguise
chants are not magic,
artificial mint

what's written on your signs
the tired paradigm
of a soviet
Artificial mint

when it crashes, you're bailed
Cuz you're too big to jail
what will make you quit
artificial mint

Rubber-stamp, it's magic x4

Sew it up - you're dragging your dress again.
Cinch it up - it's falling apart in the wrong places.
Draw it up - make your intentions plain.
Dry it up - martyrs have no production values.
Tear it up- they could never hold you to it.
Soak it up - you're a paper tiger now.
Live it up - somebody will buy it.
Shake it up - it's anybody's paradigm for the next 15 minutes.
Talk it up - TelePrompTers are cheap.
Lift it up - it's walking too fast for you to stand.
Even it up - it's too precious for them to keep.
