    dotsDeath to Wal-Mart!dots

    Massive corporation monster lives in town
    Headed by execs, hearts enclosed in iron fists.
    From my car I see the mass, the growing plague, I frown.
    Did Sam Walton really want this?

    "So what is wrong with Wal-Mart?" You critics all protest.
    "The prices are low, their service-not slow, and unfurled,
    Everything that one needs." I used to shop there, I confess.
    But under that yellow smiley stamp is a threat to take over the world.

    Controlled already: 10% of all our Chinese imports,
    5 of our 10 billionaires: rich store executives.
    Yet an average worker’s wage is down 3 bucks compared to all sorts
    Of other retail super-chains. Seem insensitive?

    Goodbye Harry’s Hardware Parts!
    Farewell Fredrick’s Food!
    In one on ones with Wal-Mart,
    Small businessmen get screwed.

    The discrimination situation seems 50 years behind.
    Employees: 2/3 women vs. Managers: 2/3 men.
    Immigrants: they make less too, exploited all the time, but mind,
    Sweat-shop workers have it worst: lower wages, fees for unused rent

    On Wal-Mart’s wonderful dormitories, with single
    Beds with sheets. Unventilated luxury suites, although…
    The other many beds in the small space make it legally
    Less than livable. So where does the money go?

    On employee mass security! They can’t just unionize!
    With representation, they’d raise all the wages, mark
    Healthcare way down, proclaim they’re ruthless guys.
    No cash left for surveillance where "valued" customers park.

    Wal-Mart could be better, in fact it could be fine,
    But in the quest for power, the only winners are rich schmucks.
    If more are educated of the real cost, maybe soon, in time
    We can all shout with assurance, "Wal-Mart sucks!"
