What Bankers Have Done To All Of Our Children! .......By Talile Ali


Does anyone see
What the Bankers have done
To this land of the free
By way of our children

To justify taking
The wealth from the world
They have created War's for killing
All of our boy's and our girls

Our children are all going
To fight in the Wars
Without even knowing
What they're dying for

To kill and to be killed
Each and every day
And fight against people
In lands far away

And who are the winners
Not the US of A
Not the nations assaulted
And destroyed in these melee's

Not the politicians
Or king, or dictatorships
Not even the many
Who think they are rich

The winners are bolder
They're Men of such means
To profit from killing
and destroying all that's clean

Because to these Bankers
Who are in control
They send out their orders
To consume all we know

They tell all our leaders
What to do and to say
So that we the people
Will do things their way

And As we are sending
Our troops off to kill
The Bankers are smiling
And filled with such zeal

They take all the riches
From all we assault
And fill up their coffers
Till no one has naught

And when they have plundered
and socked it all away
To increase their control
Of the world this a way

It is the New World Order
Of have and have not's
The Bankers are the have
Everyone else, the have not's

Is this what we brought
Our children in the world for
Is this our understanding
Of the Nation we are dying for

For our children to be dumbed down
And sent off to kill
So that Bankers can profit
From the blood that they spill

Since World War One
To the skirmishes today
Our Children are left dying
Being doped and left maimed

So, If you don't here me
Cheering on the troops
It's because I am so tired
Of our nation being so duped

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
