What Do People See

When I look around me today
I wonder what do people see
If they wish they were truly free
If they listen to what leaders say
Taxes are they content to pay
And not just their own,
Bitter seeds they have sown
How will they vote on Election Day
Will they pay for the wealthy too
This they must really want to do
They all seem to be so very blind
They don’t even count the cost
As for liars freedoms are lost
And dreams are left behind
