Down To The Ground - Poem by Joseph Narusiewicz

Pride goes before a fall
High lofty towers burn to the ground
Symbols of money, oppression
Wealth built on the backs of slaves

I am for the distribution of wealth
For all the nations rising
Lets see health care for all
Lets send all to school and college

I hate the death of the innocent
False religions shall also burn
The earth shall soon be on fire
Everything that should fall, will fall

Look at the angry flag worshippers
Idolaters who put nation above love
Ideologies of amassing power
Propaganda, your country is better

See the priests weep for Babylon
Religious robes hiding the State
Leading the blind into sectarianism
Preaching nationalism as Gods Word

National guards in poor countries
Trained to protect American interests
Love your country or leave it!
They stole it from the Native Americans

American capitalism must end
False ideals so high and mighty
Military power backing corporations
Tar and feather the rich who steal

The rich trample on the poor
They pollute the entire world
Lawyers to back up their greed
Laws bent to protect their wealth

In money we trust burns
