Old McDonald’s Farm 21st Century Style


McDonald’s is a burger chain,


And at this burger chain, they’ve sold

over 8 billion cardboard burgers here

With minimum wage workers there

and Styrofoam containers polluting everywhere,


Small farmers were replaced with corporate farms


and on these corporate farms they have

genetically altered seeds here

and steroid injected cows there

and pesticides everywhere


Wal-Mart is your one stop Super Store


and at this Super Store they have

low paid red vested associates here

with aisles of sweatshop products there

putting mom & pop stores out of business everywhere


Now it’s Amazon.com, Starbucks, and Home Depot

No more independent bookstores here

Or corner coffee shops there

Gone are neighborhood hardware stores everywhere


All went according to corporate plans

Workers were brutalized and downsized here

Consumers were hypnotized and dogmatized there

And the public was carbonized and homogenized everywhere


Now monopolies own the world

And we’re fucked fucked here

And fucked fucked there

And fucked fucked everywhere
