Two Faced

Politicians drown in opulence

While constituents beg for scraps on street corners

 

Executives make a living eating lunch

While teachers live in poverty

 

The vocal minority beg for Christian values

While hiding from everything that Christ taught

 

The world gone right is the world gone wrong

Socialism is the enemy but capitalism continues to destroy

 

Look how far we have come

Look how we have put a fresh face on the age old issues

 

Slavery rebranded as freedom

Sold to the masses as minimum wage employment

 

Everything has changed, yet nothing has changed

All we have learnt from history is how to make it look better

 

It seems that real change can only come from those in power

Yet it is those in power that need change the most

 

So the rest of us are left to learn how not to care

As the two faced few, dictate society under the guise of freedom

  1. So what is your answer, Chris. Are you fighting this? Screaming this shame from the rooftops? Or just accepting like John Doe?
