    We the people.... big words only words
    The state of the world today
    Seem like it is all about the money,
    As they speak those pretty words,
    About freeing another country
    Is it about the oil? Hmm. Thinking

    The state of the world today.
    Talking about better education for our children,
    Yet they cutting programs left and right in full sight
    And they say there not…yeah all right

    There is a thin line about
    What you say and what you do.
    Yes I see...how you make more rules
    To ensure YOUR future
    And tell the people what you do is to protect WHO!

    But who is there to protect me from you you.
    The state of the world screwed up because of you you.
    Trying to control the life of a nation,
    Making them play to a tune.
    That was design by you you you!

    I do see you, and the clues you leave
    As you smile showing white teeth;
    Yes you take big bites
    Out of people life,
    And swallow hard.
    Growing fat like a barnyard hog.
    Flashing your credit cards.
    Killing trees to make malls.

    The lies you are telling won't get you to heaven.
    You don't have a soul.
    Now TAP that!

    Do you think you’re Caesar?
    Excuse me but didn’t Rome fall?
    Oh oh you think you are Napoleon?
    Wait a minute, didn’t he get exile,
    And die on a prison island?
    Hmm, Thinking
    Got to get ready in the mind
    As well as the body,
    Might got to run,
    Or stand my grounds
    The State of the world today.
    The State, of the World.
    My View.
    Does anyone else see the clues?
    Peace

    $$RICH$$ so true, it is like they are working the world as a stage, they the director.

    triniti424 yes indeed waving my hands, and hand on my hips..thank you for feeling me on this

    Khasm13 you are right, you will not see the true in the media, because they control the media, you only see it living the real life.

    angelicsage my sister, yes these are real issue, bringing it to the surface, eyes wide open

    1poetsought yes you are on point,

    foxylady30315 my little sister that is what i wanted to be seem, the pattern that is forming so wonderful you got my meaning

    gempis yes you do see the clues, so plainly in sight.

    j'hiah the media will never let you know the truth, it is more a form of entertainment, not the truth.

    :thanks: thank you my bruthers and sistahs...much love:heart:
    Peace
