    Avast, Ye Captains of Industry
    By Lauren

    Unlawful reproduction of digital media
    can get a fellow sued,
    and when poor Somali teenagers
    hijack our ships, the pundits come unglued.

    Handy stand-ins for elected officials and crooked brokers,
    for megacorp CEOs
    and all the other plunderers with attaché cases
    and expensive clothes.

    We should be grateful they do it without force
    in a free market machine of many facets,
    console ourselves with convenient purchases
    as they part us from our assets.

    So read your children Peter Pan,
    romance them on tall tales
    that they might grow up believing, despite the evidence,
    that the good guy always prevails.
