Orchid Of Justice


You pick you poison
Like you pick your party
Poverty or wealth
Liberty or your children's health
War to breed a common need
Coercible waters the human seed
You think you can't kill a kid
But you really know you already did
Just throw them in the mass grave they dig
Yes, this is how we really live
This is how we really act
This is how we honestly attack
This is how we don't look back
This is how we paint our face
This is our most delectable taste
And what goes in comes out as waste
We follow orders to be the best
We honor policies that correct the rest
Tally massacres to gauge our success
And close our eyes and hold our breath
Put our hand upon our breast
And swear allegiance to till their death
But not our own, we must thrive
In contrast to how they hope to survive
American's destiny which is to eternally strive
Protect our queen and expand the hive

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
