NAZIS 2013

Poem by: Philip Roberts

Summary

A friend of mine (a former criminal who served a decade in prison for his offence) recently lost his job after the F.B.I. raided his place of employment solely to embarrass him and get him fired! This is monstrously totalitarian behaviour by an organisation (the F.B.I.) which has always been rotten through to the core!

Nazis run our lives today
Reducing all our hopes to fear,
Life was once so fine indeed
Till the terror goose-stepped near.

Terrorists now run the Gee
And order us to live their way,
Forcing us to toe the line
Watching us through night and day.

Terror rules our every dream
Until we prey to never wake,
They say they’ll make us fit the mould:
Our will is fully theirs to break.

Marching across democracy
Because we broke their rules they say,
So to our workplace they goose-step
And tell us that it’s time to pay:

But the piper sets an awful price
Controlling us until our deaths,
Haunting, taunting, stalking us
Until – relief! – our final breath.


THE END
