    Emergency Committees in every city.
    Are needed to rule on the ruined and un-pretty.

    Crisis Committees are you now bloody well needing.
    To establish and change the dark nitty-gritty.

    I look out my window I see a city.
    Neglected by officials with funds aplenty.

    Into pockets they go with invisible hands.
    Called taxes, and levies eating revenue of man.

    Not yielding.
    Not giving.
    Just neglecting to caring.

    It must be stopped at rise by the giving.
    Reluctant to say, that you were taken by some.
    In silence the anger in your heart does it run?

    Those watching think
    you have lost your mind.

    They say those people
    complain all the time.

    It’s labeled social welfare
    to get back your due.

    In the beginning
    their wealth
    was taken off of you.

    Reversal of welfare
    it’s a dirty mind game.

    You feel their argument is valid.
    You’re reduced to some shame.
    Like you were needy
    before they took all your cash.

    Now you’re needy
    because they don’t give any back.

    Emergency Committee your position isn’t pretty,
    you petition the process and you’re arrested for reasons really.

    Crisis Committee sees what happens in process,
    a new way to effect is needed to change the outcome of that.

    Violence is on the edge,
    some don’t understand
    unless you go upside the head.

    But hold on a moment, it dilutes your cause.
    You’re violent; I knew it before
    we confront you all.

    So redirect your effort to change the flow.
    Unregistered from the process,
    see change start to grow.

    Independent voter
    has an advantage to some.
    Not knowing where you are coming from.

    Then while you have them tilted and thinking.
    Trying to ask the black pastors to get you to listen.

    Then demand that your taxes,
    be redirected to your welfare,
    your children, to a place where you care.

    Neo-liberalism direct your economics back to you,
    now you grow, things change you then pull more switch ups on the whole crew.

    Emergency it’s a Crisis.
    Blend your political view,
    with an emphasis on economic growth.

    With the political engines forging full speed ahead this piece was certainly timely, giving the reader pause. Who is looking out for those who really need it. Keep speaking on it Hodee, I hear ya.
