REFUGEE

We all are running

from something

throughout our lineage

our people ran

from the wild

woolly

Mother Earth

our home

Now those who run

get locked inside

cages

even the babies

from south

of the border

NAFTA took them down

but we don’t talk about that

we just turn on the brown people

and drive them away

keeps us distracted

from what Mr. Big is doing

to all of us

Some are paid to

divide and

incite chaos

quite a job

killing your own people

find it hard

to understand

It’s Mr. Big’s

favorite play

Modus operandi

MO

every criminal

has a routine

Some call it the Strategy of Tension

worth noting

it’s our future

create chaos

and militarize in response

Seeing the coming storm

some run from it

refugees others stand and resist

as best they can

try to give hope

and strength to those

hiding in the shadows

refugees in their

own right

 

DISTRACT AND DECEIVE

Hillary

we’ve ‘been there

done that

alright

already

But she

will be the first

woman president

following the first

black prez

specifically designed

to keep the ‘left’

in place and

under control

as the social fabric

of the nation is

dissolved

and foreign policy

privatized

Corporate oligarchy

knows Hillary

will play the game

read the script

act the part

Shows

reveals the Democrats

have nothing left

inside their

dollar bill packed

‘program’

It’s a blank program

one intended

to distract

and deceive
