Someone was bound to do it.
He’s not even original.
The Texas entrepreneur whose vehicle decal
ties up an abused woman
thrown in the bed of a pick-up.
Decal sales have jumped.
So domestic abuse is a problem
only when there’s no money in it?
Then why stop with decals?
Design a fashion line of ripped and bloody clothing.
Market alcohol with abuse slogans,
endorsements from guys who beat the rap.
Oh, profit justifies.
And when one near and dear to our profiteer
suffers domestic violence,
the defense can sign a book deal
advertised on blood-stained billboards
and sell battered, bruised blow-up dolls.
Oh, how profit justifies.
Now may the gods and goddess curse me
giving abuse profiteers more free advertising.
I’ve no good excuse.
No profit justifies wanting dignity for women.
