To the makers of The Dark Knight Rises



“The Dark Knight Rises” or Hollywood Movie Traps

                 (In the brain of the dropout medical student)



America's middle class struggling,

Lines are still long from dawn* at the Unemployment

The poor are going through foreclosures,

Short-selling their hard-earned American dreams.


Somewhere in Hollywood,

A regime of movie top-guns give births each day:

Their children are violent creatures

Like “The Dark Knight Rises.”


To the humans like this white-man future doctor

The Dark Knight is an ultra-powerful alien

Its secret electromagnetic elements transformed his brain chemicals

The nice young man fell in The Hollywood Movie Traps.


Here comes again, the money top-guns abused their power

They sent their ultra money maker to America;

Their Dark Knight infiltrated the minds of American youths

Forever superficially, a world of moviegoers idolize the Hollywood.
