This series is somewhat inspired by the poem “Howl” by A. Ginsberg. It’s about the dark side of capitalism and the dangers of conformity in the United States.
Even with lyrics like this – I got to admit, these Molochs do have their cute side!
What sphinx of cement and aluminum bashed open
their skulls and ate up their brains and imagi-
Moloch! Solitude! Filth! Ugliness! Ashcans and unob
tainable dollars! Children screaming under the
stairways! Boys sobbing in armies! Old men
weeping in the parks!
