Occupy's Struggle

Still angry from revolutions long past
Greed wondered how long it would last

The occupy people have been asleep
Their eyes closed not making a peep

Now awaken they look at privation
Asking what's happen to their nation

Progress was not suppose to add more
For all of those who are money's whore

The plan was suppose to provide enough
For those struggling in life finding it tough

Wondering if it's too late to escape their fate
Revolution or Armageddon may be on the plate

Now for occupy to really develop and grow
They will need to find new ways not to owe

    I like the win with this. Good points concerning occupy. Any time a movement such as this is sprung into play, the media SLAYS it to shreds by name calling and other sorts of bs. If they want to talk, then talk...don't assume the people of a movement are stupid, or exhibitionist bums. Is freedom of speech and rise to action not one of the cornerstones of the Constitution? They need to speak clearly and have a concise plan of action. I wrote a poem or ten about this very issue. WELL DONE!
