List of Demands

Posted by on Oct 5, 2011 in 2011, Choken Word, OccupyTogether, Truth

There is no list of demands.
No single line that can be drawn in the sand
To disable their plan.
To stop the corruption that has began.
The majority ignored too long.
Labeled as we sing our song.

The hope and change promised turned into blame.
The secret handshakes continue again.
Selling the shirts off the backs of the poor.
Giving million dollar bonuses to the criminals for…

Taking our homes.
Taking our jobs.
Taking our rights.
Taking our will to put up a fight.
Taking everything this country once stood for.

Jobs shipped overseas to the cheapest spot.
Now they ask us to gather not.
To be silent while the corporations rape.
As zero bankers now serve as inmates.

A media blackout paid and bought for.
700 peaceful protesters arrested grows an encore.
All while a war criminal goes on a book tour.

Father a preacher
Awake and aware.
Mother a teacher.
Awake so beware.

I know your pain.
I feel it right now as the storm clouds gain.

I will bare witness.
I will speak my truth.
Until I have no tongue.
For this has only begun.

I will march on the powers that be.
For everything has been taken from me.

I do not pledge allegiance to any flag.
No red, white or blue
Flowing through these veins.
So let our freedom reign.

I do not pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America,
and to the empire for which it stands,
one nation, divided, with slavery
and lies for all.
