the new justice

built by men in overalls

we will be destroyed by men in suits

The vision of our founders

now a pay to play for

those who hold the cards.

Fix the system you say

Get out and vote

Your vote matters

it’s over before the first vote is cast

It’s an illusion, a farce

perpetrated upon us

To give us the illusion

that we have the final say

The system is broken

ruled by the dollar

Save the environment?

make it rain in Congress

a good idea?

only if it toes the line

Smiling Joe Candidate

just bargained away his campaign promise

who needs insurance after all?

“Trust me” he says

and gets get re-elected

isn’t that what matters?

 

The illusion of Democracy

is the Liberty we now cherish
