And along comes a highwayman.......

In the beginning there was blue sky
water and the earth
Some have said..... about the time that
the politics was
given birth 

This man ruled his own world
but carried our destiny by the ass
And then apparently it all went to his
head ......he became selfish .....crass

Though waiting in the edge of the woods
the highwayman watches and plans
Looking for a handout .......to be
stolen from a travelers hands

That was then and this is now
the difference is wall street
They will not only take the hand out but
both of your feet

And legally too ........no one's looking
it seems the systems got a hand out too
I dont know.........I've just had enough
robin hood where are you

The entire financial system is organized and run to the benefit of some very wealthy men. I love the part about them taking "both of your feet". It is so true. Many have lost their lives to this selfish beast.

Not only the nation, but our whole world needs to be reclaimed. Well... That, and the moon. I don't know who really owns the moon. I thought it was mine too but I didn't receive any share for the plots of land sold on it.

I love this Ahorseback, so true. I don't know if your were referring to a beggar but they never do satisfy with what is given, always wanting more.

Cardisa , I am referring to Bankers, Corporations and Government "leaders" who take and take and take from all of us. I would refer the highway robbers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Now they call them Congressmen and Senators. :-}

Nah... I first have to make some profound contribution to this world so that my fellow Earthlings choose to honour me by naming a star to forever implant my memory in our solar system. Otherwise I'll just be like the others - claiming/stealing it from everyone.

But, thank you and I accept your kind nomination. ;)

Majadez , Perhaps my dear girl that you're just being a kind and decent human being is you're contribution! Remember , small acts create a huge change! Be well and good luck.:-}
