We are in a world where the rich and powerfull make all the decisions, who governs us, what our pay should be, how are lives should be run. Then when you think you are about to test freedom, their progeny takes over and the system continues..I ask when will it all end?

They walked in death's shadow

All evil they should've feared

Lives but within their hearts

Bidding then heed

Darkness living inside

 

Their guns be their strength

Through it our obeisance be got

As they rampage through

This valley, where Sodom's wind blow

 

Before them we lie

Trembly hearts caught

In-between chattering dental

Bladder loosened by fright

Body taut in heartless readiness

For hot lead to strike

 

Do they not laugh?

Teeth sparkling ever thus

Polished by choice chop

Behind tinted glasses

They sneer,

As hunger pushes us

Towards them in servitude

 

They know not your name

So we beseech you in vain

They hearken only to their need

That hunger that knows no sate

Their god is money

 

We know their oppression

Be only for this while

We hoped for death's call

Not on us but on them

It's call whispered song

 

Alas, we hoped in vain

Fate holds back our saving rain

They knew death's name

Planed all along to cheat him

 

Their progeny returns

Groomed across the seas

Away from empty classrooms

Made tutorless by their forebears

They hoped to keep us blind

While theirs seek the light

That hopefully will make then blind

 

Alcoholics and addicts

Infused with ways foreign

Speaking white tongue whitely

Speaking our tongue strangely

If they speak at all

They know not our ways

 

Our culture repulses them

Our dances bemuses them

Their roots cut off

Replanted in cities far away

 

To them it's said

Our future is given

To carry our flag,

Write our laws,

Fight our wars,

And rule our land.

 

To them we are

Just another piece of

Inheritance .
