United We Are Stood Upon

f I come across as a bit critical,
about some subjects, religious or political.
this is all because the fact is I,
am a critical kind of guy,
when it comes to those who brainwash,
and spew out so much drivel and hogwash,
leading people repeatedly to disasters,
so those who spout it can be masters,
of all the Earth that they survey,
'don't do as we do, do as we say! '
Because they always say they have the answers,
these troupe leaders of Disaster's dancers,
follow them to the next global stage,
where they can act out their hate and rage,
whilst feeding the masses the same old story,
that our world will be just hunky dory,
all we need do is keep believing,
as they carry on with their deceiving.
So, yes, I am a just a wee bit cynical,
just as they are always very clinical
in their clever use of propaganda,
to sell the world their pre cast agenda.
It matters not where you live,
they are never ever going to give,
you the chance to be all you can,
or to live in peace with your fellow man,
because everywhere, those who hold the power,
look down on us from their ivory tower,
and conspire together to ensure,
that their dynasties remain pure,
and maintain their rule and future health,
by only allowing those of massive wealth,
to join with them to maintain,
their position in the power game,
and find new ways to exploit and use,
we see it daily on the news,
more people killed every day,
in wars that just won't go away,
because political and religious division,
ensures the planet will forever be riven,
unless there ever comes a day,
when the majority actually have a say,
and politicians have really, truly taken note,
and made the policies for which the people vote!
