Underfables: Market Forces

Market Forces    

            Once upon a time a Corporation bragged, “I have neither body to jail nor soul to damn, yet the Law, which is an ass, says that I am a Person! I own the cops, the courts, both parties and the media. What could ever stop Me? I am too big to fail!”

          Ten years later a poor yet honest Human found a bulging  burlap sackful of that Corporation’s stock certificates. The Human cried, “What luck! I needed the kindling!”

            Moral:  Drive your cart and your plow over the bones of the dead.

           Commentary on the Underfable:
           This is another Undermoral stolen directly from William Blake's Proverbs of Hell.
