Veil Of Lies - Poem by Jon Peter MIah

Who knows where we are going
Never looking before we leap
The veil of lies now falling,
the truth now obsolete
Economic meltdown and social collapse
Global warfare and Geneva Conventions prolapsed

Lubricate the machine with the blood of the innocent
Just keep the oil flowing,
keep the corporate cogs turning
Keep the rich man rich
And the poor man crawling

A mindless mannequin
A homicidal homophobe
Like a savage cancer
it feeds on the entire globe
With malice and vengeance
we condemn your states
Trigger happy cowboys
a nation of all that's fake.
