An attempt at Liberty Poetry

Revolution

My country wages war, live on my T.V.
Helplessly I watch, people dying without need.
They try to sell us war as the solution.
How many more must die, to satisfy their greed?
Silently I hope for revolution.

My country passes laws no one’s even read.
Each one a new pronouncement, liberty is dead,
crushed beneath the weight of institution.
How can I believe a single word they’ve said?
Tirelessly I wait for revolution.

My country collects tax, with total disregard.
Carelessly it’s wasted on bureaucratic lard
and corporate bailout distribution.
Our children’s future irrevocably scarred.
Hopelessly I pray for revolution.

My country watches its people lose their homes
while it provides the banks with trillion dollar loans.
Citizens bereft of restitution.
What’s a man to do, when they’ve taken all he owns?
Violently I call for revolution.

My country lost its way, its’ leaders are corrupt,
leaving their people oppressed, homeless and bankrupt.
No hope of a peaceful resolution.
Even if it means my life I must offer up.
With my words I start the revolution.

Good poem but

don't give up on a Peaceful solution. Ron Paul and his message is getting out. This is a WAR for our MINDS and HEARTS, blood shed would not stop the NWO in fact it would usher it in. Continue to read and learn and educate others, run for office or help someone else run.

Take your frustration and direct them in positive actions toward peace and civility. It would be a terrible thing that people fight one another, that would only make the elite laugh at us.

Good luck and peace and goodwill we can do this, take back government through peaceful means.
