Karmic Revolution! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

Reagon babies lying dead
on the Middle East sands....
oil battles there, even to

South America!
American workers stand in line
to buy the goods they lost jobs to...

bailing out the banks
with more borrowed money!
more Chevy's sold in China,

than are sold here!
Japan's Hiroshima cars
flood the market...

their kids stay in school,
their workers have jobs!
yet still whaling, and nuclear disaster!

terrorists steal planes,
or get elected to office....
trading clean water for oil,

and the profit is high!
the houses built by
the Hollywood president...

now stand vacant,
owned by banks that are owned!
and we stand in the street,

with nothing left to lose....
following in the footsteps
of our brothers and sisters...

in Epypt, in China, in Libya....
wherever they fight...
for freedom, equality, and a chance!
