American - Educated Fool
Americans, you have your TV,
Internet and schools.
There’s really, so much knowledge,
You’re educated fools.
Watch some TV.
It will tell you how to eat.
It will pump you full of sucrose,
Empty calories that taste so sweet.
It’s a trickle down news-day,
We get all we need to know,
From airheads on Fox News,
Or another brainwashing show.
Empty calories and promises,
Keep the “students” entertained,
False history and propaganda,
Means- nothing of value will be gained.
All Americans join in.
Religious idiots, do your part,
Take a child and feed it lies,
Break the spirit and break the heart.
But-“stand against abortion!
Don’t murder any fetus!”
Allow our kids to grow,
Before you cut and bleed us.
Take away the infrastructure,
That could make a difference to our nation,
Send our kids to an endless war,
Started by a corporation.
God doesn’t live on Wall Street.
God doesn’t even stop by.
For the evil of big business,
Will make the almighty God cry.
God doesn’t sit in a board room,
With other idiots in suits and ties.
While businessmen and women,
Decide where our kids will die.
God doesn’t sit in Congress,
While lawyers rob mankind.
Make laws for corporations,
Destroy the soul and the mind.
Elect another lawyer.
From Harvard or from Yale.
That lawyer will kill your children,
And hang your butt up on a nail.
You think a lawyer, a politician,
A businessman has a heart.
Put your good thoughts in one hand,
And in the other place a fart.
They’ve never run a court-room,
With honesty, in 200 years.
They laugh all the way to the bank,
While Americans live in tears.
“Seek Jesus! Obey authority!
Hunger for all that is good.
Sign up for war at the high-school,
Any good American would!”
Religious idiots! Stop it!
This America is NOT for you!
You have no idea what a lawyer is.
You don’t have a flipping clue.
God doesn’t live at the Pentagon.
God does NOT stop by!
The war machine will kill our kids,
And our nation will always cry.
Americans- you’re fools,
Merely pawns in the corporate game,
So the poor can walk in mud,
And the rich -the walk of fame.
Americans- you pray to the God of money,
You bow to the corporate cow.
And when this false God rips out your heart,
You’ll ask, “God, where are You now?”
Believe in this corporate lie,
The business suit, the business tie.
And capitalism for the few,
Is why the truth and poor suffer and die!
Elect a republican!
Elect a democrat!
Keep the status quo!
Keep the fat cats phatt!
Life’s about the bottom line.
It’s just a ledger sheet.
If you’re a lawyer or a businessman,
You know you were born to cheat.
It’s all about servitude,
Either way, we’re screwed.
Vote for the candidate ,
The one who most loudly screams.
But know that it’s the fascist,
That will more quickly destroy your dreams.
Go on and vote that lawyer in!
What the heck!
Billions of souls are lost,
In their game with their stacked deck.
Exercise your right to vote!
Vote for the tyrant of your choice!
You think you have a democracy.
You actually think you have a voice.
Hold your cards close to your heart.
Put your ante in the pot.
You need to wake the flock up,
The dealer knows what you’ve got.
Every square inch of Earth,
Will come under the corporate rule,
While the American remains,
The educated fool!
I’ll pray: Our Father that’s in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name,
And may Your Earth and heaven,
Both reflect the same.
America abandons God,
To vote for another lawyer to rule,
It’s war, mayhem, tyranny, utter nonsense,
And makes the American – an educated fool.
Another hub is banned.
But stand by. As another voice is stifled, watch.
The Nazis are coming for Anne Frank. Stand by. Sit by.
The CIA is invading another country.
Sit by. Stand by.
It's business as usual.
Bow to the sacred cow..
If I do not protest the prohibition of free speech - it is a sin.
If I do not speak out against lies - it is a sin.
I will not bow to the sacred cow.
I do not worship money.
I will not pretend that all is okay.
I can't look the other way.
That is how I am.
Make up your mind "who" you are.
"They" are watching.
