The Corporate Entity

Everybody knows that a corporation is not a person. In the Law, however, due to a clerical mistake in a Court of Law about a hundred years ago corporations became persons, under the Law under certain circumstances. Corporations (or the persons within them) have been largely successful in exploiting and expanding on this mistake ever since.

The corporate
Does not always
Think in its own
Best interests,
And rightly so.
If it ever
Did that well,
We would pass laws
Preventing it
From doing that,
Ever again.
