Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Das Capital
At the left of the century
stood the bus that was going right

I walked in and threw old baggage
out of the window

I was not going to let
Marx screw up my life anymore

Here is life ahead of me
decadent and existential

I would be as caring about
a cause

but not at the cost of
live that was so beautiful

I was going to strive
for the poor alright

Yet Robin Hood struck me
as the kind of symbol

who would be far less complicating
than Das Capital
