Beat poet Tony C elaborates on politicians and their promises...
While politicians make promises to
save or change the country
Everything’s crumbling all around us
And the prices keep going up.
They all pledge to create new jobs
fixing the infrastructure;
But those aren’t jobs for the
millions of unemployed.
If the work would ever materialize
it would go to the big contractors
with their heavy machinery.
Not workers with picks and shovels.
The personal debt crisis in America
is totally out of control.
We’re charged monthly for services
that at best should be once a year.
The bankers pay little or no interest
but we pay double digits on credit
Another form of enslavement
like taxes and fees and adjustments.
Our news is filtered to please the
advertisers and corporate sponsors
No one knows what’s really going on
except when a whistleblower comes forth
But the media is always quick to discredit them.
Meanwhile we pay for subscriptions
on media services that have commercials
They double dip us and we ask for more.
The planet’s weather is all screwed up.
It’s beyond the tipping point or what
reductions in emissions can solve.
Most don’t know that the government
messes with the weather modification
and we know what happens when you
mess with mother nature.
Climate change is happening now
and it’s only going to get much worse.
The widespread violence on the streets
keeps growing — as does the social unrest.
Already thousands of neighborhoods
across the country are unsafe — even deadly.
A warrior culture and militarized police
only exacerbate the problem
People have forgotten that peace is good thing.
The winner of the presidential election
will be the one who tells the most lies,
raises the most money, and suckers the
most people into believing they will make
everything better — like they always do.
People want to be led, to be lied to,
and told that everything will be o.k.
The truth is, 2016 is the turning point
When the Earth’s climate goes beyond repair
When debts will be too high to ever pay off
When wars and violence will spread like disease
When the bridges, pipes and roads will collapse
When the cost of living becomes too high
When the lies outweigh the truth
When it becomes apparent that we are nothing
but slaves with overpriced smartphones and cars.
