Actually True

Post by bags123 » Fri Feb 26, 2010 11:14 am

Actually True


It's a tragic affair
that's long been
over brewing
With it's fictitious platitudes
Engraved,
plastic debt

By our lifestyle earned
in the chains
of their profits
In the lives they permit us,..
until we're deemed
a threat

But we can't blame it all
on the mad
politicians,
or the corporate scumbags
who have paid them
their due.

It's been us all along
who permit it
to happen,
only we can believe
we can make it
untrue.

Undoubtedly true. Its too easy to blame others for our own shortcomings
Although they give credit far too easily.Nobody forces you to accept
