Couldn't Hide It From Me


Take your hand and spread the olive oil in shape of a cross
Brainwashing compilations of communities lost
Propaganda ran rampant through the streets
While gentrification just takes away a place to sleep
Oh the vagrant families
Gunshots taking lives like a thief
You wouldn't believe how many people here could die in a week
They couldn't hide it from me
Uncle Sam didn't care
Dogmatic appearance
Indoctrination everywhere
Televised lies and obloquy envelope the nation
In the hour of apocalypse
Society's changing
And I refused to stand here waiting on another to come
Like I missed the last bus in a hurry for prom
I think its time for us to open up our eyes
Bureaucracy's skewed
And hoping you don't see the lies

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
