It's time to rise.

We’ve got the whole world in our hands
and we’re on our feet to take a stance
and we’re not going anywhere,
without our fists raised in the air.
We have a voice that you’re gonna hear,
because you can’t make us disappear
this is a crowd of people standing strong
and we’re standing where we belong,
we are standing on your lawn,
we want our world back before it’s gone.
Tell us what you’re gonna fix
no more of your dirty tricks,
we’ve grown tired of your stupid shit
it’s time that you got a grip.
It’s time that you became a man,
take your suit and tie off and take a stand.
A real man doesn’t need a pocket book,
but a banker needs to track all the money he took
if you can’t bear to be a man then take some notes,
because you’re going to face our wrath for the cheques you wrote.
If you ain’t got the money then don’t be spending,
we’re not going to take anymore rear ending,
it’s your rear that we’re planning on ending,
so say a prayer and bite your lip,
this is going to hurt quite a bit.

Phew, that was a doozy. I'm sure glad I'm 14 - still got all the time in the world to plan out where I'm gonna go. We're turning into robots with all this 'you have to do this, then this, then this to be successful' bs the world's throwing around right now (i mean, we've talked about robot takeover before... it could happen). Same goes for everyone thinking that your intelligence and worth is based on a letter grade in a school where you learn irrelevant crap you'll never use in everyday life... No hope for humanity. Very very good poem, really emphasizes the issues and repetition we see all the time in modern media and politics.

Thanks, Hanorbi! It's a struggle throughout life to stay aware of what's really happening in the world and not just believe the bs you see and read at face value. It's an even greater struggle to want to stay aware of the truth around you, rather than give in to ignorance and be like the other sheep who think their government never lies to them. The world is f-ed up and the people have become docile.
