"Criminal" is Such a Loaded Term

Let us take time to praise the subversives
Among us, the burglers, the narcotic sellers
And those who have learned how to help
Them to launder their money, the counterfeiters,
And insurance cheats, and the various others
Who are not content to let those who are wealthy,
Connected, respectable, legally skim ever more
Of the wealth that we all help produce, even we
Who are slaves to their cops and their capital,
Always impoverished, making a starvation
