Haves and Have Nots

Look again

towards the breadbasket of civilization 

they hold up a mirror

 to our own, looming confrontation

 Upon the beautiful shores of Greece

 comes a class warfare, that has divided the cultural peace

forced down his throat the Noble Greek will not swallow

The European Austerity Plan he's expected to follow 

Damning their working class culture and not approved by Apollo!

 Quite fitting this eternal struggle has returned, to this original arena 

when the working class people are exploited

 they always find it anathema 


May their Truth be guided by the Sword of Hercules

 and the Wisdom of Athena
