Posts Tagged ‘War on the Poor’

Hey there Jack, I hear you’re all right.

Everything’s going great and your future is bright.

I’m glad, in fact I’m relieved as hell.

I’m just wondering if you heard the warning bell.

Your friends have been ringing, please answer the call.

Though it’s good for you, it’s not for us all.

I don’t mean to scare you, it’s not my way.

But there’s some things you need to know today.

The poor are being savaged by policies of greed,

And unlike you, they don’t have all that they need.

They are going hungry, being shut out in the cold.

In fact our whole countries already been sold.

Those politicians with the sneering grins,

Don’t even pretend to create a win-win.

They are screwing us all to the floor.

While their puppet masters scream,

“More, more, more.”

The funeral business is thriving,

While others are barely surviving.

Suicide, heart attacks all on the increase.

Let’s stop for a minute and honour the deceased.

I’m glad your job is going so well,

for how long in this climate it’s hard to tell.

I hope you never fall on hard times.

and no-one turns their back with no reason or rhyme.

I pray you always have someone to care.

Someone who whispers I’ll always be there.

You are the someone who has it within.

To start the process of creating a win-win.

By starting to notice and starting to care.

To be that person who sees what is there.

I’m glad you’re all right, Jack. I really am.

You’ve got all you need to see through this scam.

Maybe if you weren’t so lost in yourself.

We wouldn’t be hurtling straight towards hell.

It’s not too late, we’ve still got time.

To change the tempo and write a new rhyme.

People before profits before it’s too late.

A nation that sees everyone as great.

Though my heart is heavy, my faith is not dim.

As in the ocean of madness we continue to swim.

Sense and sensibility what happened to them,

in this World controlled by mad men.

Jack please take care and remember this,

it’s not in having it all we experience bliss.

It’s sharing a hug, or helping a friend.

It’s giving a shit until the very end.

I hope you see with time left to spare.

When those you love are all still there.

When it’s not too late to say “I’ve been blind.”

And those who love you say “I don’t mind.”
