So many don't understand power. It's not created by any single man. Yet so many point to an idol as the source of power, for good or bad. Long ago they removed idols many of time, and failed at all the reasons why. Idols are powers focused into a symbol. The power it's self is the followers who believe in their idol. Removing it, just makes their idol evolve into a new form. People choose their idols, not the other way around.

People come and people go
A voice that rings out to follow
Ideals created within their minds
It doesn't matter what they find
As long as it can be held
Their beliefs cannot be felled
The more you repress
The more you digress
The victor now repressor
From being an aggressor
Thinking right from wrong
Taking what doesn't belong
Hoping in time they will follow
While impowering the idol more so
