What 'they' Want For Amerika - Poem by Alice Perfect

'they' set the rules
'they' control the FORCES
police and military, and markets!
'they' are playing with the weather
'they' want us to consume 'their' GMO crap
'they' want to add things to our clean water
'they' control the education of the public
'they' decide when to attack other countries
'they' decide who to draft and when
'they' want our money, and labor
'they' rent us the land we 'own'
'they' can bury us in court until we are broke
'they' make business difficult for the little guy

'they' want to take your healthy baby and force
inject them with animal protein with a nice
little preservative called mercury? wtf?

'they' want your stuff when you die

'they' want it when you are alive too

'they' are MASTERS at keeping a flaxen
chain around your neck, gently
leading you down their path...

You want to know who 'they' are?

How about seeing clearly
what you are
to 'them'

you don't have to walk their
death trail, where 'they' the robbers
hide and lurk, waiting for
the same dumb prey to come again
and again

'they' move slowly
you can be faster
