    During these times of
    hasteful acts and assessing the damage later
    political player haters and
    plaigarized passion debaters
    heirarchal subjugaters and
    apple pie flavored now and laters...
    I wonder what the populace thinks
    not some neilsen rated gallup poll
    equated survey...but...the people
    the other 99 out of 100 they didn't ask...
    those in the ghettos or trailer parks
    who have become second tier victims
    during these terrorist (Amerikkka) misfit acts
    and re-acts / those that have found
    the dream to be an air brushed aberration
    on a "to blue" sky

    programs cut / anorexic budgets
    and times are constantly looking for
    ways to lose weight as if the times
    aren't sick enough already

    I want to know what the people think
    those that did not make the ten O'clock newcasts
    interviews/society's abused
    those that reside in the shadows whose
    visa for existence has been refused/ those
    whose fathers are incarcerated and
    exists with a young life...confused
    dreams incinerated...voices muted/so
    they can't even sing the blues

    I want to know how they feel when
    their souls are ignored even by 9-1-1
    calls /but when buildings fall/
    the rallying cry is exhalted to the most
    high/and
    the masses stand united as if an emergency
    wasn't already the reality for so many/
    hopes fallacy/a united reality?...
    who's to take the stand and explain our
    country's short memory?

    Miss liberty don't see the poor
    Uncle scam continues to blindfold the whore
    and what's in store for the disenfrancised/
    heartache and teary eyes
    disdain in disguise as concern
    righteousness doused in kerosene
    and ready to burn
    as those muthafvkas in the white house
    hold the match while pledging millions
    of dollars to dispatch weapons to kill

    cold *** hearts can't even feel
    this sickness in america's belly
    that makes those who aren't in
    the top 10 percent* ill.


    (c)2003 blakverb


    *10 percent of the population hold 80 percent of our countries wealth.
