Be Heard, Be Louder - Poem by Matthew Holloway

The wealthy and powerful
Who control the media
Cherry pick each news story
To dictate what they wish us to hear
leaving their audience
A little more amenable
The distraction techniques
Deployed are easily dissected
Create an enemy to distract
From the purchased governments failings
That all anger and rage falls
Away from the feet where it belongs
The creation of enemies
Social groups to rally against
The job thieves, reliant on the state
The alleged lazy and criminal classes
The overseas dangers to be afraid of
All creations, dictators classics
Take to the streets in peace
No masks, no weapons all on mass
Raise the numbers and the noise
That it can no longer be ignored
Sing from the same hymn sheet
And demand the changes
Put the politicians on minimal wages
Strip the bonus and claim expenses
Keep the religious profiteers
And business moguls in cages
Away from the walls of powers
Research and talk to one another
Share the stories and information
be what they are afraid we can be
A unified informed army of the people
But do it peacefully
Any act of violence or aggression
Will kill our cause before it begins
Together we can be heard
Together the can be louder
Together we can reclaim
The power
