Walk - Poem by Matthew Foor

Take a walk with me and talk with me
About the world that we live in today
Cuz when we reach the shores of the river stix
We're each gonna have to pay
Pay for the sin
And pay for the pain
Pay for the wars we've waged

The ironic thing is
The wars we've waged
Are against ourselves
And against the RAGE

The RAGE of the world around us
Society that keeps us down

'Eye for an eye'
and 'Turn the other cheek'
Contradictory Phrases
Keep the future looking bleak

Religous beliefs
And political control
Hand in hand
They take their toll

Profligates and popes
Watching over us like herders of sheep and goats
They control all of our hopes
Leaving us no way to cope
