    Pantheons of gods
    Looking down
    Smiling
    For they control our actions
    Knowing they shall never lose our worship
    We kill in their name
    We rod in their name
    We slander in their name
    Just some we might obtain
    More of their blessing

    We bow down in reverence
    We make sacrifices unto them
    They have our undying devotion
    And we love them
    Can’t make it without them
    They decide what we shall eat
    Where we shall live
    What we shall wear
    Who we shall marry

    They rule our world
    The eye with three corners
    Is just one of their brands
    That is placed
    Across the hearts of our little ones
    Our children learning at an early age
    To worship them
    To steal for them
    Even to kill for them

    They have control
    That have molded us
    In their likeness and in their image
    We have taken on their personality
    Their mentality
    Its all about anarchy
    Get as much as you can
    While you can
    For you never know
    When your time is up
    And you can’t take it or them with you

    So we continue to bow down
    We continue to lay prostrate before them
    And call out their name in our day to day chores
    George, Abraham, Andrew, Benjamin
    And a host of others
    Without them we are nothing
    Without them we cease to exist

    That almighty dollar, the things we do to make that money, you speak some truth here and I like the creative way you went about it.

    WELCOME Wanderer... :wave:

    This was an Awesome Entrance...
    This piece was so full of imagery, insight
    and profound wisdom with a bit of mystery...wow
    it's amazing what we do for the root of much evil...
    maybe not all...but much / when it's in the wrong hands...

    this was a Wonderful peace...
    will look for more of you...
    and again, Welcome to our Family :wave:
