$10 A Gallon?
$10 a gallon?
'Does that really matter now?
When it approached
One dollar per gallon...
You should have voiced your concern then!
Not when your pockets have gotten thin.
And deepened to hold more lint!
You want to make cents?
Put these sunglasses on.
Grab a twig from a bush...
And get to begging!
You might gain some sympathy,
From someone who recognizes you are in disguise.
And they are in the mood,
To share with you their good attitude.
IF they have some of 'that' left! '
Using The Media
They blame and accuse,
To have victimized...
The ones they have historically abused,
To have disparaged with lies.
And disenfranchised throughout their lives.
Stole from them resources.
To say, 'Go Back To Where You Came From'.
Founders of racism, division and conflict.
Leechers and destroyers of peace.
