Manipulation

There are eyes everywhere,
freedom is anything but
what we are lead to believe is true

we are unprotected from intruders
our human rights dwindling,
soon we won’t have any ground to stand on
soon everything will come to past

all the battles we’ve fought and continue to fight
doesn’t make that much of a difference anymore,
maybe way back when
dying for our country meant something of importance,
something one could be proud of
but not now

these are cooked up wars,
supported by the same people on both sides
like the democrats and republicans go hand-in-hand
so does wars and other calculated entertainment distractions.

One thought on “Manipulation

  1. Thank you for reading my poetry. I also enjoy your work. Keep the faith, I wrote and spoke during the dark days of Nixon’s repression, war mentality and enemies list. The tide is turning and you will see a growing light.
