Overthrow The Status Quo - Poem by Eric Cockrell

the greatest terror threat
on American soil lies
in the daily workings

of Wall Street and 'corporate America'
against the common people!
the greatest threat to freedom,
our own government!

the worst drug on the streets
is the lie they perpetuate,
backed by mainstream media.

the worst sin disguised
under 'organized religion'...
the worst slap in the face
to the American worker...

the best thing that can happen...
workers, men and women,
taking back our dignity!
