    Seems the human hating beast
    Has found it's right time
    The right trigger
    An inhumane environment
    Neither of the West nor the East
    And you know that i'm
    Pressed hard to figger
    How long this **** is gone continue
    Befo' the civilized
    Come to the fore
    And check it all
    at the door
    today it's Iraq
    but i'm warning you
    watch your back
    study and pray
    don't get so comfortable
    i say
    with injustices done
    the human family
    is truly one
    and what goes around
    alwayz comes around
    one under your colors
    is no better than one of the others
    if you take one life unjustly
    it's as if you have killed all of humanity
    and unjust oppression is even worse than slaughter
    and killing for material gain is insanity
    cause you really oughter
    know.......
    material is dead and calls to death
    and humanity itself
    is the higher wealth​
